WHAT PEOPLE SAY

I got involved with EA when I first went to a career help session that they had at the library. EA has helped my by helping me to find ways to get a job and connected me with resources to help me with my search for a job. I have had many job offers and interviews, I am currently deciding what is best fit for me.

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.
