Opportunities for youths living in high-poverty communities may be limited simply because of where they live, however the federal government provides millions of dollars every year to the Youth Opportunity Grant (YOG) Program. The Workforce Investment Act authorized the Youth Opportunity Grant program to increase the high school graduation rate, college enrollment rate, and employment rate of youth living in high-poverty communities. The program targets any youth, 14-21, regardless of income, who lives in federally designated zones, enterprise communities, and other high-poverty areas. The Grants are funded annually so you need to check their website for the most up to date information.
