About the 100,000 Opportunities Initiative:
The 100,000 Opportunities Initiative is a coalition of leading U.S.-based companies committed to training and hiring 100,000 Americans between the ages of 16 and 24 who are out of school and not working by 2018. Launched in August of 2015 to create more pathways to economic opportunity for young Americans, the 100,000 Opportunities Initiative aims to be the largest employer-led coalition in the country. The Initiative creates pathways for youth with untapped talent and potential to build skills, gain credentials and employment, and reclaim the American Dream. The 100,000 Opportunities Initiative is an employer-led coalition that will leverage the Aspen Institute’s Forum for Community Solutions. It is supported by many of the country’s youth and opportunity-focused nonprofit organizations, local governments, and participating funders.
