Opportunity Youth Collaborative Data For Impact


June 8, 2021

1:00 PM - 2:30 PM



Can a focus on data improve outcomes for Opportunity Youth? Since 2019, the Opportunity Youth Collaborative (OYC) has been partnering with the Boston Public Schools and Bunker Hill Community College, the largest youth- and young adult-serving institutions in the city, to incorporate a more comprehensive data-strategy into their work to address racial inequity in student experience and outcomes. You'll hear from representatives of both institutions, as well as youth and young adult leaders who will share lessons learned from this work and goals for the future.
