Atlanta, G.A. (July 30, 2020) The Atlanta BeltLine, Inc., Atlanta BeltLine Partnership, and Juvo 360 are joining together to provide Atlanta residents access to higher-paying, family-supporting jobs from employers along the Beltline. With over 2.5 million people living on or visiting the trail each year, there are more than 5,000 businesses in the area that may be able to provide meaningful work.
Research has shown that proximity to work affects the odds of coming out of poverty. Longer than average commutes may worsen lower-income families’ chances of moving up the economic ladder.
“We are committed to creating equitable economic opportunities for our community. People living along the Atlanta BeltLine will be able to have careers that allow them to spend less time commuting and more time focused on priorities that improve their quality of life,” said Clyde Higgs, CEO of Atlanta BeltLine, Inc.
“We are excited to be working with the Atlanta BeltLine to further the mission of connecting Atlantans with local jobs and housing options that fit their lifestyles. The relationship with the BeltLine and businesses along the BeltLine will drive awareness and help local communities thrive,” said Mark Emery, Co-Founder of Juvo 360.
“Our collaboration offers people the chance to live, work and thrive along the BeltLine,” said Atlanta BeltLine Partnership Executive Director Rob Brawner. “Juvo provides an important resource for residents allowing them to find work near where they live.”
Juvo 360 is a social enterprise on a mission to help hourly workers find hyper-local work and housing inside their communities. Job seekers can download the Juvo Jobs app below and apply for jobs on their mobile devices.
Whether walking, driving, or taking public transportation, the app alerts users about job openings available near where they are. The Juvo Jobs app also assists businesses by creating awareness of their openings to talent who are in close proximity to their place of business and not just a ZIP code.
