Opportunity@Work is a non-profit social enterprise whose mission is to secure a future of robust opportunity in which all Americans can learn, pursue and realize their potential contribution.
We have a vision for a labor market where those who have the potential to perform a job successfully have the opportunity to obtain that job. In this “re-wired” labor market:
Hiring decisions are made based on an individual’s ability to demonstrate skill and readiness
