Nestlé has launched ‘Project Opportunity’ in the US, a career acceleration programme to help people of all ages gain work experience and strengthen their skills in food and beverage manufacturing.

By 2017, the company has pledged to hire 1,000 paid interns and trainees and significantly expand the number of apprenticeship positions it offers across its US operations.

Nestlé will also expand its US Readiness for Work programme designed to facilitate the transition between school and employment to reach more than 300,000 people per year – by participating in job fairs and organising information sessions and workshops.

Project Opportunity is part of the broader Nestlé Global Youth Initiative to help young people develop skills and become more employable. Nestlé launched this initiative to extend its Creating Shared Value commitment to offer 20,000 job opportunities to people under 30 in Europe by 2016.

To ensure it fulfils this commitment and goes further, Nestlé has also launched the Alliance for YOUth, a movement that now counts over 200 European companies as signatories, to tackle the continent’s youth unemployment crisis and create more than 100,000 job opportunities by 2017.
