Your update on news, developments and opportunities for action from OYU

June Newsletter

Dear OYU Members,

Last month was busy — from sharing our Recommendations to the Biden Administration across social media to many of you participating in this month’s Youth Action Hour focused on Opportunity Youth.

We are so glad to see this energy around supporting Opportunity Youth, and as we enter the second half of this year, are excited to continue building this movement with you. From organizing for policy change in your local communities to helping us advocate for programs that support Opportunity Youth on the federal level, you are helping us make a difference.

Stay tuned for more updates soon on new ways to connect with others in the movement, training opportunities, and more! And as always, if you have questions or suggestions, just reply to this email.
