Opportunity Says It All: How Five Communities Are Supporting the Transformation, Education and Employment Success of Young Black Men.
This report describes how select stakeholders in five communities (community/systems leaders, youth development/
case management staff, and young black men) articulate and define success for disconnected and off-track young black men; discusses how communities have designed interventions and supportive policies for disconnected and offtrack youth; lays out successful approaches and interventions that attract young men into programs and offers examples that address the needs of young black men; and highlights barriers to employment faced by young black men and the strategies utilized by workforce systems and programs to get them employed.

Youth Opportunity Community Profile: Hartford
In 2000, Hartford was awarded a $28 million Youth Opportunity (YO) Grant from the U.S. Department of Labor, YO! Hartford. This fact sheet outlines the lessons, legacy and impact YO had on community practice in the city of Hartford. The Hartford site served as an example of how collaborations and partnerships can increase educational options for under-credited, over-aged students and for those who have dropped out of school.
