Starbucks, Microsoft, Porch launch initiative to employ young workers in the US


Starbucks , Microsoft , Alaska Air Group, Porch.com and other companies are leading a new initiative to hire 100,000 young, minority employees by 2018. The employer-led coalition formed the 100,000 Opportunities Initiative with the collective goal to hire at least that many 16 to 24 year olds who face "systemic barriers to jobs and education"

More than a dozen employers, led by Starbucks Corp., will form a coalition to train or hire more than 100,000 teens and young adults who face systemic barriers to jobs and education, participants in the coalition said Monday.

Starbucks, Taco Bell and Potbelly Corp., as well as the foodservice operator HMS Host, have joined several other employers in the coalition, called the 100,000 Opportunities Initiative.

The employers, which represent industries like retail, airlines and hotels, have committed to hiring and training at least 100,000 16- to 24-year-olds — or “Opportunity Youth” — through apprenticeships, internships, training.

The coalition said that 5.6 million youth between ages 16 and 24 are out of school and not working. The employers see this group as a source to fill the 3.5 million jobs in the US that are open and don’t require a four-year degree.

Unemployment among young people, particularly African Americans and other minorities, remains high, even as the economy has improved. Overall teenage unemployment was 18.1 percent in June, according to federal data. But among African American teens, unemployment was 31.5 percent.

Overall unemployment is lower among young adults ages 20 to 24, but it remains 9.9 percent. The overall unemployment rate is currently 5.3 percent.

The 100,000 Opportunities Initiative includes some of the biggest private employers in the country, such as Walmart, Walgreens, Target, Porch.com, Microsoft, Macy’s, Lyft, JPMorgan Chase, JCPenney, Hilton Worldwide, CVS Health, Cintas and Alaska Airlines, in addition to the participating restaurant companies.
