The Youth Opportunity Fairs have a successful legacy in Portland, with fairs in 2018 and 2019 hosting more than 3,000 16 to 24 year olds and 50 employers. Over the course of those fairs, more than 500 in-person interviews were held and nearly 300 job offers extended. We’re proud that 63% of past attendees identified as persons of color, and we believe these fairs made a difference for young people seeking their first job or a career pathway.
COVID related job losses have had a disproportionate impact on young people and communities of color, and it’s critical that we come together to support and elevate Portland’s future workers and leaders. These fairs are our community's opportunity to support our young adults, and we need your help to spread the word. Please visit the event website if you are interested in being a sponsor or registering as an employer for the event. Thank you for your support!
