Port of Seattle

The Port of Seattle formed a partnership with five local nonprofits in an effort to save youth jobs for the summer and beyond. The port's Opportunity Initiative aims to provide summer jobs for 220 youth, ages 16 to 24, who have been adversely affected by the pandemic. Youth unemployment was around 25% in May, according to the port. The $1.5 million initiative is funding job programs at Seattle Goodwill, Seattle Parks Foundation, Partners in Employment, The Aerospace Joint Apprenticeship Committee, and Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle.
