Experts will share research on population growth in the Tampa Bay region, and businesses will get the opportunity to discuss populations we need to target to meet their needs.

There are approximately 17,830 opportunity youth in Hillsborough County.  These 16-24 year-olds are neither in school nor employed. This research brief helps community leaders gain a better understanding of who these young people are, their stories, and ideas and solutions to support young people in the greater Tampa Bay area transition to adulthood.


Discussion  Takeaways

Data is telling us employers are not hiring youth as much as they can. Youth is valuable, hiring for potential.

Employers will learn about Accessing Training and Employing Disconnected Youth (Opportunity Youth), Training and Education, and gaining insight on how to get beyond their barriers.
