THE STORY:

Help reduce youth unemployment.

American youth unemployment and underemployment among high school and even college graduates is staggeringly high.

Several surveys of hiring managers have found that a major cause is a lack of effective communication and social skills.

We developed an education program locally to tackle this problem. Our success has been overwhelming and inspirational. Among the 637 youth (18 to 24-year-old high school and college graduates), mostly from disadvantaged backgrounds, that we have put through our program locally, 74% landed new, meaningful, career-track jobs or paid internships.

Our vision is to ignite the possible among American youth nationwide by making our program available online for free. It will be the first program of its kind.

If we do nothing, 3.5 million American youth will not get a job over the next 5 years.

Please help us transform young lives.
