Why Attend/Sponsor the Gala

The DC Metro BLN takes seriously the commitment to this nation’s Millennials made by the ADA, the ADAAA and the IDEA that promise education and employment.  

We work with great partners, such as the National Youth Transition Collaborative, BroadFutures, Greater Washington Internship Coalition, Marriott Foundation’s Bridges from School to Work and TransCen, Inc. to bring our employer members together to focus on the gap between school and work. As a USBLNĀ® Affiliate, we support the Rising Leaders program. 

Our ME Collaborative (Millennial  & Employer) is developing an e-learning pilot series of modules to provide education and resources for college youth transitioning from school to work. We are proud to be working with The George Washington University and Gallaudet University in this effort. 

The DC Metro BLN has held numerous virtual career fairs over the past few years. In 2018, we plan to step it up a notch to ensure successful employment outcomes by qualifying and matching employers with talent through industry specific career fairs.
