Starbucks 100,000 Opportunities Initiative

Walter E. Washington Convention Center


Launched in August 2015, the 100,000 Opportunities Initiative is the largest employer-led coalition focused on hiring opportunity youth. These young people face systemic barriers to employment and education. We are creating opportunities for employment, internships, and apprenticeships. The 100,000 Opportunities Initiative is led by FSG and the Aspen Institute’s Forum for Community Solutions. It is supported by many of the country’s youth and opportunity-focused nonprofit organizations, local governments, and participating funders.

The Destination is just the beginning
