Join a Community Action Team

OYU Community Action Teams (CATs) are local coalitions of young leaders and youth-serving organizations that mobilize to uplift their voices in the political process.

If there is no local CAT in your community, contact Lashon Amado to see if one is in formation or if you can help start one.

SPEAK

Invite Us to Your Events

There are many young leaders from OYU and our Sponsoring Organizations who would benefit from and contribute great energy and skill to events focused on social justice, opportunity, and community development. We can also provide tables for voter registration and OYU membership recruitment.

Please contact Kimberly Pham if you would like to invite young leaders to your event.

Support the Reconnecting Youth Campaign: Unleashing Limitless Potential

OYU is a co-facilitator and member of a national campaign calling on Congress to invest in Opportunity Youth. We are calling for increased federal funding for all existing proven programs in order to reconnect one million young people a year to education, employment, service, and leadership roles.
