Not actively hiring, but want to support Opportunity Youth in Atlanta? We need volunteers and sponsors for the Job and Resource Fair.
Why should your company get involved with Opportunity ATL?
4.6 million Americans between 16 and 24 are out of school and also not working. Often referred to as Opportunity Youth (OY), these young, motivated workers are a vital and untapped resource looking to fill millions of open roles. In fact, retention rates for opportunity youth are up to 300 percent higher than for their entry-level peers. Many young people, however, are unaware that opportunities are available, nor are they aware of the steps they need to take to secure these jobs. At the same time, employers often lack strategies to effectively recruit, train and retain young workers who face systemic barriers on their path to employment.
