We told you about the 100,000 Opportunities Initiative last spring, and how the job fair that they put on was catered to the country’s “opportunity youth,” or those between the ages of 16 and 24 who are neither working or in school.

The event, which brought some of the biggest corporate employers in the country to the Georgia World Congress Center, was billed as “just the beginning” for the Atlanta-metro outreach.

The continuation of the pledge—to find, engage, and hire opportunity youth—is taking place next month in Decatur, as the Metro Atlanta Chamber has launched Opportunity ATL, which will provide many of the same resources, partners, and (even more) employers as the original event from the spring.
