Oct. 20, 2015 ​Do you know a young person between the ages of 16-24 in need of a job? Mayor Greg Stanton supports the 100K Opportunities Initiative and invites Phoenix area youth to attend the Opportunity Fair & Forum at the Phoenix Convention Center, 100 N. Third St., on Oct. 30 between 9am – 4pm. A coalition of employers launched the 100,000 Opportunities Initiative with the goal of forming the nation’s largest employer-led coalition committed to creating meaningful pathways and hiring at least 100,000 opportunity youth by 2018. With nearly one in five youth in Maricopa County out of school and not working, the 100,000 Opportunities Initiative is committed to investing in our region. As a first step, this employer led coalition is partnering with the City of Phoenix, Maricopa County, Maricopa County Community Colleges, ASU and the Opportunities for Youth Board to host the second Opportunity Fair & Forum. The event will be an inspirational day of connection and empowerment, with more than 20 leading companies, and a full suite of services, workshops, and motivation to help break down employment barriers for youth. To register to attend and for more information, visit www.100KOpportunities.org/phoenix. Youth can pre-schedule up to two interviews online and should plan to dress for success to meet with various employers during the Oct. 30 event.
