There are over 25,000 young people across our region who are disconnected from either school or the labor market – and in some cases, both. Today, The Community Foundation and Identity, Inc. issued a study and report entitled Connecting Youth to Opportunity: How Latino Youth Perspectives Can Inform A Blueprint For Improving Opportunity In Montgomery County, Maryland. Latinos and other Hispanics now represent nearly one-fifth of the population of the County.

This all-new research study is based on a survey of more than 900 Latino youth in Montgomery County, and identifies an array of key indicators that could serve to inform whether or not students are becoming disengaged in school, have the potential to drop out, or may fail to find a job once they leave school.
