I. Introduction Disconnected Youth Disconnected Youth are young people aged 16 to 24 who are neither working nor in school. According to the most recent Measure of America report, there are 4.9 million, or one in every eight, American young people in this age group who are not connected to either of these anchor institutions. Disconnected youth are sometimes referred to as Opportunity Youth. Emphasis is placed upon this group because the years between the late teens and the mid-twenties are believed to be a critical period during which young people form adult identities and move toward independence. The effects of youth disconnection—limited education, social exclusion, lack of work experience, and fewer opportunities to develop mentors and valuable work connections—can have long-term consequences that snowball across the life course, eventually influencing everything from earnings and self-sufficiency to physical and mental health and marital prospects. Much discussion has been focused on how to reach these young people and connect them with broader social institutions in order to prevent these negative consequences. Page 15 of 72
