2017 Year in Review

For the Nashville Career Advancement Center, 2017 was defined by new beginnings and the end of an era. Opportunity NOW, a signature initiative of Mayor Megan Barry, saw our summer youth program jump from 150 young people entering employment in 2016 to nearly 10,000. In addition we saw the launch of another successful program, the Nashville Construction Readiness Partnership, which helped more than 100 Nashvillians begin a new career helping to build Music City.
