App Available to Allow People to Work Near Where They Live Around the BeltLine
Atlanta BeltLine, Inc., Atlanta BeltLine Partnership and Juvo360 are joining together to provide Atlanta residents access to higher wages, capable of creating long-term sustainability, 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.
Proximity to work can assist financial mobility, with longer commutes challenging lower-income families’ chances of strengthening their household’s economic status.
“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 Juvo360.
“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.”
Juvo360 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 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 nearby their place of business and not just a ZIP code.
