Long-Term Partners in Our Opportunity Youth Work
The Forum for Community Solutions work on the Opportunity Youth Forum and in the national opportunity youth movement would not be possible without many different partners. (This includes the many funders that support our work and the efforts of our partners, which can be found here.)
Jobs for the Future (JFF)
JFF is a key partner in much of our work. JFF leads our collaboration on Opportunity Works, and is an important implementation and technical assistance partner on our original Opportunity Youth Incentive Fund project.
Forum FYI, Gap, Inc., and the Forum for Community Solutions co-convene the Opportunity Youth Network, that brings together the country’s leading funders and corporations of all sizes, federal, state and local government officials, non-profits and formerly opportunity youth to work together to reduce the number of opportunity youth by one million over five years.
Equal Measure is the Forum for Community Solutions long-standing evaluation partner.
Harder + Company supports the Opportunity Youth Forum by facilitating what is known as the learning Community of Practice among Opportunity Youth Forum backbones and supporting our efforts to identify learning needs and priorities and to document, synthesize, and share lessons across the network.
