About this Event

More than 1 in 10 young Americans ages 16 to 24 - including more than 63,000 in the metro DC area - are "disconnected" from both work and school, neither in a job nor in the classroom. Their plight is a major challenge that policymakers must tackle to ensure that all young people in America have a chance to succeed.

Join PPI for a July 18 lunch briefing on Capitol Hill to learn more about the hidden crisis of youth unemployment and how forward-thinking employers and nonprofits are working together to reconnect young people. In particular, this event will feature new results a from a pilot effort led by the International Youth Foundation, McDonald's and other nonprofits that created more than 4,000 job and educational opportunities in Chicago for young people at risk.

Lunch will be provided.
