New Reports Provide a Roadmap for Creating Opportunities for Disconnected Young People in Baltimore
More than one in five young people ages 16 to 24 in Baltimore are neither in school nor working. As a community, we must find new ways to re-connect these young people to education, training, jobs and entrepreneurship opportunities.
Working with other organizations in Baltimore, we commissioned two expert reports that make recommendations for responding to this challenge, focusing on expanding industry-specific training programs, fostering more collaboration between organizations and providing expanded supports for youth to help them succeed.
Read a summary of recommendations from the two reports.

“Expanding Sector Employment Opportunities for Young Adults in Baltimore” prepared by Kingslow Associates for the Baltimore Workforce Funders Collaborative.
“Connecting Baltimore’s Opportunity Youth to Careers” prepared by Field Guide Consulting for the Job Opportunities Task Force and Baltimore’s Promise.
The research reports were developed collaboratively by Baltimore’s Promise, the Baltimore Workforce Funders Collaborative and the Job Opportunities Task Force. Additional funding support was provided by the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the Baltimore Metropolitan Council, the National Fund for Workforce Solutions and the Corporation for National and Community Service.
