Employers are seeking the foundational skills needed in the 21st century workplace.
Chicago is home to 50,000 Opportunity Youth.
$11 Billion is lost annually due to employee turnover.
Highly engaged employees are 87% less likely to leave their companies.
Through extensive success coaching and support, we're helping Opportunity Youth and recent minority college graduates to combine their natural talent, resilience and grit with a heightened sense of purpose for both life and career success.
The talent we work with has already demonstrated the grit and persistence to persevere and overcome a wide range of obstacles. Now, with our guidance and mentorship, they're directing that energy towards their careers and your company's success.
We're here to help you develop and harness your skills and take them to the next level. That's why, when matching you with potential employers, we take your skill levels and interests into consideration to ensure you're empowered, satisfied, and engaged in your new position.
For a full year following placement, we'll help you acclimate into your new role with our Workplace Persistence Program a one-to-one mentorship where you'll build meaningful relationships with certified career coaches and work through roadblocks, and navigating a professional work environment.
Life can derail your success. To help you to be as secure as possible in your new role, we'll develop a personalized, wraparound support system to assist you with housing, transportation, child care, or other hurdles you might face.
We named our organization "Purpose" because we help each candidate discover what drives them and then connect that to the role that they are in today. Through thoughtful job matching, Purpose-building and ongoing Workplace Persistence Training, we help shape Opportunity Youth into the leaders of tomorrow.
We work with leading youth workforce development programs to source the best candidates to fill a variety of roles such as light industrial, IT support, business operations and more. In addition, every candidate has been fully vetted, is job-ready and possesses the resilience and grit they need to succeed.
Purpose candidates are prepared to flourish in a variety of entry-level roles. Through our Workplace Persistence Program, we equip them with the tools they need to successfully navigate the workplace.
Enhancing performance at work starts by overcoming challenges at home. From transportation to child care, we work with a range of social service and community organizations to provide Purpose employees with reliable solutions to logistical or life problems they may face.
Purpose specializes in working with Opportunity Youth - low-income, young adults ages 18-26. We partner with the best youth workforce development organizations that provide us with a pipeline of young adults who have successfully completed workforce development training. We then enhance their training with extensive "in-context" success coaching and support.
