Governor’s Office for Children and the Annie E. Casey Foundation launch results-based leadership program

As part of Governor Hogan’s commitment to ensure young people are on a pathway to education and employment, the Governor’s Office for Children has announced that it has joined with the Annie E. Casey Foundation to launch the “Maryland Governor’s Office for Children Disconnected/Opportunity Youth Results-Based Leadership Program.” About 1 in 10 Maryland youth aged 16-24 is considered “disconnected”—they are neither in school nor working. These individuals are also referred to as “opportunity youth” because of their potential value to the economy and their communities.

Ten Maryland jurisdictions were selected to form teams of local leaders, including Local Management Boards, school administrators, counselors, nonprofit managers, workforce development directors, post-secondary education staff, social workers, and social services and health professionals, who are working together to create or expand existing programming to serve this population of youth.
