Did You Know?
Disconnected youth are teenagers and young adults between the ages of 16 and 24 who are neither working or in school.
There are 4.5 million disconnected youth in America today, equivalent to 1 in 9 teens and young adults.
Since 2016, black teens and young adults are the only group whose disconnection rate (17.9%) has increased.
Comparing genders, boys and young men (11.9%) are slightly more likely to be disconnected than girls and young women (11.1%).
As A Result....
These vulnerable young people lack the support from the people, institutions, and experiences that could assist them in developing the knowledge and skills required to live rewarding lives as adults.
Leading to a difficult transition into adulthood, as disconnected youth are predisposed to parenthood, poverty, limited education, displacement, and unemployment.
