On behalf the 41 million American people living below the poverty line and the 31 million people with outstanding student loan debt, the America's Future Workforce Fellowship Program works for those who do not have opportunity and the financial security to participate in age-old tradition only the wealthy can afford: working in unpaid internship.
The truth is oft overlooked in today’s political, economic, social and technological macro-economic framework. We are afraid to publically reconize that the wealthy can buy opportunity and we are missing a chance to directly address the problem of inequality within America. We need to recognize the shortcomings and we need to stop offering patchwork solutions to long-term, systemic problems like hunger, poverty, and unemployment.
By supporting America’s Future Workforce your dollars go beyond feeding one hungry family, putting a roof over a person’s head or ensuring your favorite nonprofit can keep its lights on for one more day. You empower a social movement and you provide opportunity and economic stability to people in need.
Let’s make America stronger and America’s future brighter, one donation at a time!
