Opportunity NOW is a youth employment initiative spearheaded by Mayor Megan Barry's office to create a more comprehensive out-of-school network, while improving the overall climate for hiring young people in Nashville. This initiative will create paid job opportunities for thousands of Nashville's youth and young adults.
It will support the next generation as they develop valuable life skills and confidence, while ultimately aspiring for a path to a brighter future. Opportunity NOW provides recruitment, training and placement, and is broad enough to be responsive to a variety of ages and skills levels, creating pathways to both subsidized and unsubsidized employment.
Opportunity NOW's goal is to empower the youth of Nashville, while providing real chances to learn real skills that will stimulate the next generation of growth in our economy - benefiting our youth, our businesses, and our city. They say, "It takes a village..." and we agree.
