Event Recap: SDWP Flip the Script

Event Recap: SDWP Flip the Script

53,000. That is the number of young adults ages 16–24 in San Diego County who are NOT in school or working. This is a shocking statistic — and one that must change. The story is not final, but we must act now to flip the script from “disconnection” to “opportunity.” These are opportunity youth. When we engage young people through jobs, school, and community, we all win. When we don’t, the long-term impact is devastating on every level.

On Thursday, April 13 roughly 500 of our region’s young adults, parents, employers, workforce professionals, service providers, educators, funders, community members and elected leaders came together for the San Diego Workforce Partnership’s Flip the Script: 53,000 Reasons to Change the Story of San Diego's Opportunity Youth at they Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation. Read about the event in this recap from the San Diego Union Tribune and download the full report as well as the report highlights.
