Connecting Employers and Young Job Seekers
We’re closing the employment gap so everyone wins
Our Evolving Strategy
Our goal is for a million opportunity youth to be hired by 2021.
We are developing a new strategy for 100,000 Opportunities 2.0, to expand this national movement.
We’ve built a powerful coalition of more than 55 nationwide employers.
Since 2015, we’ve been working in seven demonstration cities, launching large hiring fairs and job retention efforts to connect employers and opportunity youth. The process is supported by local organizations that provide skills training, education services, and case management to ensure success in hiring and retention.
