In light of continually developing circumstances and with the best interest of the community in mind, we are postponing Opportunity Summit 2020 to later this fall. We are working closely with the Manchester Grand Hyatt to lock in a date and will post an update on this page as soon as the date is set. We will post updates here and share via email, social media, etc. as we have them. Already purchased a ticket? Click here for additional details.

There are 37,000 young adults ages 16–24 in San Diego County who are not working or in school. Together, we can lower the youth disconnection in our region. We must create opportunity for all young adults to reconnect and thrive. Are you in?

We gather to better understand the issues impacting young adults and continue the movement of young people and allies working to create opportunity in San Diego County.

A day of knowledge sharing, dialogue and action. An expert lineup of speakers—young adults included—will not only help us better understand the issues impacting opportunity youth (individuals ages 16–24 who are not working or in school) but give clear direction on how we can take action to create opportunity in our region.

Local and national change-makers and young adults focused on increasing opportunity and inspiring a positive future for all.
