CINCINNATI (December 6, 2022) — The transition from adolescence to adulthood can be tough under the best circumstances, but youth from low-income communities face additional challenges.
Tocqueville members gathered to learn how our community is rallying support for young adults. Read more about the key takeaways and how you can help.
Youth from low-income communities face unique challenges when transitioning from adolescence to adulthood. United Way focuses on this work through the efforts of our recently announced NextGen Success investment portfolio, which is dedicated to ensuring low-income youth have support and a clear pathway to economic stability.
At the Tocqueville Society First Tuesday gathering on Dec. 6, members explored how our community is rallying support for young adults.
Tocqueville members and others in the community who do not work directly with youth have opportunities to make a difference. Panelists noted that one of the best ways we can all support youth is to reframe the narrative around success after high school. There are many ways to prepare for a career, and exposure to various career opportunities is key.
Thanks to our moderator, Mary Stagaman, and panelists who helped guide our conversation.
