Three regional Portland-SW Washington workforce development boards have released their 2022 Opportunity Youth Report that finds nearly 34,400 youth ages 16 to 24 are not in school or working. This accounts for more than 13% of all youth in the region.
The opportunity youth population in the Portland-Vancouver region increased by more than 8,800 between 2016 and 2020.
The report, commissioned by the Columbia-Willamette Workforce Collaborative comprised of Worksystems, Clackamas Workforce Partnership and Workforce Southwest Washington, identifies key demographic data and barriers faced by these young people. The information assists the organizations in designing programs and services to strategically reconnect these young people to post-secondary education and/or career-track employment.
For more information about hiring local young people, please contact our Youth Program Manager, Amy Black.
