43,000. That is the estimated number of young people in San Diego County who are NOT in school or working.* These young adults are opportunity youth.

Last year, 500+ changemakers met to understand the story of San Diego County's opportunity youth. Join us for Opportunity Summit 2018: Initiate as we step up our collective efforts to cut the rate and halve the gap by 2020—our region's call to action.

Opportunity Summit 2018: Initiate will be a diverse gathering of our region’s young adults, employers, workforce professionals, service providers, educators, funders, parents, community members, elected leaders and more. 

We are bringing together an amazing line up of influential speakers and adding breakout sessions so we can dig deep into issues related to mental health, justice-involved youth, creating an inclusive work environment for opportunity youth and more.

You will also get the opportunity to hear young adults speak boldly about their lives, passions and aspirations.
