Youth on the Rise


Youth on the Rise (YOTR)

Youth on the Rise (YOTR) leverages collective cross-sector and community-based leadership and investments of Pima County to improve pathways to education and employment for opportunity youth ages 16-24 who have dropped out of high school.

YOTR coordinates services, leverages resources, aligns strategies and improves policies.

YOTR partners break down siloed systems and establish sustainable reforms to improve three outcomes for opportunity youth in Pima County:

  1. High school graduation and GED attainment
  2. Post-secondary enrollment and credential completion
  3. Workforce readiness and gainful employment
