Who We Are

Opportunity Nation is comprised of more than 350 cross-sector organizations working together to expand economic mobility and close the opportunity gap in America.

Opportunity Nation envisions the United States as a nation where everyone – regardless of where they were born – has equal access to opportunity, economic mobility, and success at all stages of life.


Through the efforts of our Coalition and findings from our Opportunity Index,
Opportunity Nation works to combat inequality and ensure that people of all ages can thrive and succeed. We take a data-driven, bipartisan, cross-sector approach to ensuring America’s young people have a strong foundation towards future success.


Measure Access to Opportunity

Our annual Opportunity Index measures economic, educational and civic factors that foster economic mobility at both the county and state levels.


Advance Bipartisan Legislation

We promote common-sense, bipartisan approaches to increase access to education, tackle the skills gap and expand opportunity for young adults.


Convene Cross-Sector Groups

We convene diverse groups through the National Opportunity Summit, Opportunity Index updates, policy  briefings, and other events across the country that lead to innovative collaborations and partnerships.


Closing the opportunity gap will take innovative, bipartisan, cross-sector solutions grounded in data and collaboration. Explore our solutions, impact, research, and call-to-action to tackle youth unemployment, We Got This.
