Working Together to Engage Connecticut Youth
The mission of the Connecticut Opportunity Project is to invest in and help strengthen youth-serving organizations in Connecticut so they can work effectively, reliably, and sustainably with young people ages 14 to 22 who are disengaged or disconnected in order to help them re-engage in and complete secondary education, then transition successfully to the pursuit of post-secondary education, such as a technical certification, military enlistment, or an academic degree – with the ultimate goal that all young people will achieve satisfying employment that supports their agency and self-sufficiency.
Strengthening Youth-Serving Organizations to Positively Impact Young People
In Connecticut, more than 1 in 5 high school-aged youth are at risk of dropping out or have already done so. To help change those odds, Dalio Philanthropies created the Connecticut Opportunity Project.
