Video Review: 100,000 Opportunities Initiative Employer Convening – Seattle

By August 3, 2016Seattle, Videos

We are in the midst of a national crisis. 5.5 million young people in the United States between the ages of 16 and 24 are not in school or working. They need a chance to bridge the opportunity divide.
We welcomed 1,500 young people to the first-ever Opportunity Fair & Forum in Seattle, where they interviewed for jobs, accessed career resources, worked on their resumes, and received direct mentoring and coaching. More than  700 immediate job offers  were extended by the 19 companies in attendance. We know there’s much more to do and are working with our community partners to continue the momentum.
