Creating an inclusive and equitable Connecticut Economy
The Campaign for Working Connecticut is a statewide coalition of diverse stakeholders addressing the critical need to strengthen Connecticut’s future talent pipeline.
Areas of focus include:
- Opportunity Youth
- Digital Equity
- Workforce Transportation
Investing public and private funding in programs supporting Opportunity Youth is essential for promoting economic growth and social equity and for preparing the next generation of workers for a rapidly changing job market.
Faced with the needs of Connecticut’s 119,000 disconnected or at-risk youth – young people who have either dropped out of school or are in danger of dropping out of school, and who are, for those aged 18 to 26, unemployed and in many cases without the skills to gain employment – a coalition of Connecticut stakeholders are working together with our elected officials as the Opportunity Youth Initiative.
Public investment in disconnected youth is essential to promote economic growth and social equity and prepare the next generation of workers for a rapidly changing job market.
