Opportunity Youth helps re-engage young adults

Opportunity Youth helps re-engage young adults

Opportunity Youth is now registering students to get trained in high-demand careers.

The P16Plus Council of Greater Bexar County is working collectively with various community partners to streamline youth between the ages of 16-24 to resources for education and training in high-demand careers.

The Opportunity Youth Group is focused on re-engaging 16-24 year olds without and with high school credentials in the area and within school districts that represent 80% of where the drop-outs are occurring. The work of the Opportunity Youth Collaborative will create the first collective strategy for opportunity youth that connects to post-secondary credentials to in-demand occupations in Bexar County.

“Together we have created a collaborative that will build a larger pool of educated, trained, and employed young people,” P16Plus facilitator Steven Hussain said.

The Pilot
The pilot program will run for 12 months and will register a minimum of 500 youth. After a youth has registered with the Opportunity Avenue Referral System (Click HERE to register), a direct-service provider will contact each registered user offering direct assistance and guidance to support degree completion or workforce training.
