Opportunity Now conducted its very first “reverse job fair” in May 2019. This event allowed our consumers to meet with one employer to discuss job and training opportunities within the company. APACHE Industries was the employer chosen as our “pilot.”
Our Vision is to engage and empower our Consumers to determine their own futures, encourage their peers to drive themselves, and their communities, toward self-awareness and self-sufficiency.
