100K Opportunity Fair draws 1,500 youth 

Last week was the 100K Opportunity Fair at Centurylink Field Event Center, where 1,500 youth had the chance to participate in practice interviews, learn about educational and career opportunities in the region and even get interviewed on the spot by 19 different national and local companies. Numerous Road Map Project partners were in attendance helping with the practice interviews, supporting youth while they applied for jobs and providing information on specific opportunities within their work. Going forward, CCER, Educurious and many other partners will continue working with employers who participated in the fair to create career pathways for opportunity youth. Here are a few more stats from the event:
  • 700 conditional job offers were extended - some youth received more than one!
  • 200+ youth received information on commuting resources for their new jobs and 30 got free and reduced fare public transportation passes on the spot
