DC Youth Opportunity Fair

102

An estimated 4.9 million young Americans ages 16-24 are not in school or employed, including nearly 10 percent of young adults in the Washington, DC area. In response, a coalition of more than 50 top US companies have announced plans to expand its national youth hiring effort to the nation’s capital. They will launch their work in Washington with a day-long job and resource fair on Sept. 20, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Washington Convention Center, kicking off a long-term effort to connect local youth to jobs.
