An enormous, untapped talent pool for forward-thinking employers
"5.8 million young people ages 18-24 are neither in school nor in jobs that earn a living wage. They are America’s opportunity youth: resilient, diverse and motivated." 
Employment pathways connect employers to partners to prepare them to become loyal employees with skills that match your needs.
How will your company build a reliable pipeline of work-ready hires? The Employment Pathways Project assists businesses and organizations to engage and discover the benefits of working with opportunity youth. We help you select and customize successful training and recruitment models. We connect you to local partners and opportunities, plan conferences and provide speakers, and build overall capacity in the field. We serve as the information and services hub for a new movement to build bridges between employers and young people that will grow businesses and launch lives. The Employment Pathways Project is here to help the private sector lead the development of our future workforce.
