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.

COYN fills the gray space in the policy to practice loop to ensure that good policy gets made and implemented.
