Convening Overview
The Opportunity Youth Incentive Fund (OYIF) at the Aspen Forum for Community Solutions is hosting a convening of 24 communities across the grantee portfolio. Teams of 4-5 members from the local collaboratives will convene at the Aspen Meadows Resort in Aspen, CO, to do a deep dive on the OYIF five-part framework in an effort to explore strategies for deepening education and employment pathways for Opportunity Youth - defined as young people between the ages of 16-24 who are disconnected from school and work.
