The coffeeshop Starbucks is opening Friday in White Center looks in many ways like any other Starbucks store.

But to one side of the store is an area, complete with refrigerator, sink, grinder and brewer, that can be partitioned from the rest and sets this store apart.

It’s intended to be a community space and training area, where young people aged 16 to 24 who are not working or in school can receive training on skills such as résumé writing and customer service, preparing them for jobs at Starbucks and elsewhere.

On May 5, more than 30 major companies will host a hiring fair for youth at CenturyLink Field Event Center.

Together, they will interview hundreds of 16-24 year olds from King County who are disconnected from employment and education in an effort to connect them with meaningful job opportunities and a pathway to success.

Interested candidates are invited to register for free and pre-schedule their interviews for the May 5 event at http://www.100kOpportunities.org/Seattle.
