Ronnie Lott, Dave Clark, and Leonard Williams Welcomed as BAYEP Champions
On Monday, the Bay Area Council and Bay Area Young Men of Color Employment Partnership (BAYEP) partner LeadersUp met with NFL star Ronnie Lott, KTVU Anchor Dave Clark, and New York Jets defensive end Leonard Williams to discuss the upcoming BAYEP Career Pathway Summit. Last year, BAYEP partnered with My Brother’s Keeper Alliance to host the inaugural summit in Oakland, helping over 350 young people secure jobs offers on site and providing almost 1,000 youth with career development opportunities. This year BAYEP plans on building upon last year’s success, working with employers and youth post-summit to ensure access to career pathways and advancement opportunities. BAYEP is thrilled to welcome Ronnie Lott, Dave Clark, and Leonard Williams as members of the summit’s Honorary Committee and look forward to working with them to expand workforce opportunities for young men of color across the region.
