Hire One Youth
By the year 2020, nearly half of the U.S. workforce will be comprised of millennials. Will local businesses be able to find qualified candidates ready to fill positions soon to be vacated by our aging workforce?
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake’s Hire One Youth campaign is an opportunity for Baltimore employers to help shape the future workforce by interviewing and hiring at least one 16- to 21-year-old who is responsible, motivated, and engaged. Job-ready young people are available for summer or year-round positions, and employers can save time by choosing to make Baltimore City the employer-of-record.
Hire One Youth—created by Mayor Rawlings-Blake in partnership with the Greater Baltimore Committee's Hire One Youth Leadership Team, chaired by GBC President and CEO Don Fry—and is a solid investment for your organization, your industry, and Baltimore’s economy.
