Equity. Education. Employment.
These are the Austin Opportunity Youth Collaborative’s ongoing areas of focus.
AOYC is expanding our work in the post-secondary access, persistence and success space, and collaborating closely with our workforce board to amplify a focus on opportunity youth for employment initiatives stemming from a recently-released community Master Plan that provides employment training opportunities. We are also digging deep into available data to take a closer look at the population-level needs of youth in Austin.
All of these efforts include a lens toward improving Equity in our community.
Areas of Collaborative Focus: Postsecondary education; Workforce; Social Service Coordination.
