In partnership with DeKalb County, we will be gathering on Wednesday December 6th to hear from community leaders and content experts and to participate in an important discussion on the future of workforce development for our youth in DeKalb County.
Our Child Well-Being Index data indicates nearly 14,000 youth are not connected to school or work. Additionally, there has been a significant decline in post-secondary enrollment after graduation. These “Opportunity Youth” are spread across the region and constitute a growing gap between metro Atlanta’s workforce needs and the availability of future potential employees who have the training and skills needed for a career.
United Way of Greater Atlanta’s InForum Series is an open forum and discussion panel event that promotes dialogue and collaboration amongst community leaders regarding the Child Well-Being Index.
