100,000 Opportunities Initiative
Opportunity Hiring Fairs
The 100,000 Opportunities Initiative is the largest employer-led coalition in the U.S. focused on hiring opportunity youth: young people that face systemic barriers to employment and education. The coalition focuses its efforts on hosting the most impactful and effective city-focused and coalition partner-led Opportunity Hiring Fairs, or “catalytic events” in cities across the country as possible.
Since 2015, Touch has worked with the coalition to produce Opportunity Hiring Fairs in cities across the country including Chicago, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Seattle, Dallas, Washington D.C., and Atlanta.
For each event our team has provided a range of strategy, design, and production services, from visual identity and presentation design work to video and event production design to logistics and onsite production at each event.
But our work pales in comparison to the efforts of the corporate partners who show up at these events to engage the opportunity youth attendees, providing everything from resume development consulting to interview coaching, styling, and ultimately, jobs. Each event has helped to transform their host communities by providing thousands of jobs for attendees since the events began.
