Hire Opportunity Coalition (formerly the 100K Opportunities Initiative)
The Hire Opportunity Coalition, formerly known as the 100K Opportunities Initiative, aims to bridge the opportunity divide for the 4.6 million Americans, aged 16 – 24, who are out of school and not working. It forges connections between employers and the employees they need. It is made up of over 50 corporations.
OYU has provided facilitation and youth voice at most of the 100K Job Fairs across the country since it launched in Chicago in 2015, organizing CEO Roundtables and Opportunity Youth Panels to build a deeper consciousness among CEO’s of the talent pool that exists among opportunity youth.
