The 100,000 Opportunities Initiative will bring its next Opportunity Job Fair to Los Angeles on Feb. 11. The event will involve a day-long resource and job fair led by a coalition of employers offering jobs to work ready pre-screened opportunity youth, and community based organizations providing development and enrichment services for the young people of Los Angeles with the goal to streamline employment pathways and making hundreds of job offers. 

JOB & RESOURCE FAIR | 9:00AM – 4:00PM

 

20+ COMPANIES

REPRESENTED

Most interviewing youth and some making on the spot job offers

30 COMMUNITY BASED ORGANIZATIONS

Will be onsite supporting the event and engaging with youth

4-5,000+ OPPORTUNITY YOUTH            Throughout the day

 

Innovative, inspirational and interactive experiences for youth and their families will occur throughout the day and include: career workshops, college counseling, skill development, resume building, document procurement, financial literacy resources, workshops, voter registration, community service opportunities, and more.

These young, motivated workers are a vital and untapped resource looking to fill millions of open roles. However, young people are often unaware that these opportunities are available, don’t know the steps they need to take to pursue these jobs, and routinely face systemic barriers. At the same time, many employers do not have clear strategies to effectively recruit, train, and retain young workers.

Together with the Aspen Forum for Community Solutions and leading foundations, more than 35 leading, U.S.-based companies have formed the 100,000 Opportunities Initiative, an employer-led coalition committed to creating pathways to meaningful employment for America’s young people.

Together, these companies, community based organizations, innovators, and foundations will convene regional alliances of public and non-profit service providers to create pathways to opportunity, build a multi-million dollar fund and leverage innovative programming and partners to create best in class pathway strategies, and develop tools and systems that can be scaled nationally and beyond.

Our efforts will focus in three to five key cities, partnering deeply with the local community to test programs for collective impact. The Initiative launched in Chicago, and was then followed in Phoenix, and we will now bring this momentum to Los Angeles, demonstrating the power of the coalition to make an immediate impact in the lives of young people.
