California Opportunity Youth Network
Improving outcomes for Opportunity Youth
The California Opportunity Youth Network (COYN) works to transform systems, policies, investments, and narratives to ensure all youth and young adults in California have the opportunity to flourish in adulthood.
What We Do
COYN facilitates statewide communication, organizing, and policy advocacy to remedy systemic inequities affecting Opportunity Youth across California. COYN’s formation reflects the recognition that to achieve equitable economic and educational outcomes for youth and young adults it is necessary to address structural and systemic issues through policy and advocacy. COYN is established with the underpinning belief that through a network structure we can behave as a single larger entity increasing our power to affect change and support shared learning in this emerging field.
