While some progress has been made along the success sequence of graduating high school, gaining some postsecondary education, and securing employment, for too many Americans, the land of opportunity is out of reach. A person’s zip code should not determine his or her future.
The Opportunity Nation Coalition plan highlights the barriers to fulfilling the American Dream, six Opportunity Millennium Goals, and policy recommendations to boost opportunity presented in the order of the life cycle and success sequence of children, youth and families.
In the coming months and years, the Opportunity Nation Coalition will be mobilizing leaders and institutions across sectors to meet these goals and advance these policies to boost opportunity for more Americans.
