Our new report examines the financial stability of young adults – including a hard look at racial wealth gaps and how the pandemic made them worse. An update to our 2017 report, we review income, employment, homeownership, retirement savings, and student debt to paint a whole picture of where young adult finances are today.
Meet Young Invincibles’ Executive Director, Kristin McGuire!
As a youth organizer by background, and having previously served as YI Regional Director for California, Kristin has built an incredible network of young adults who have formed the advocacy foundation of this organization.
New York City is in the midst of an educational crisis: the increasing share of students experiencing homelessness. Today, one out of every ten students enrolled in New York City’s public schools lacks a reliable, safe place to sleep at night, while 14 percent of CUNY students face homelessness while enrolled in classes. Young Invincibles spoke with more than 60 young adults across New York City. Our report examines the barriers these young people outlined, along with insights from leading researchers, service providers, and government officials. We also share recommendations for addressing the growing crisis of college student homelessness.
