Help us unite educators and the business community to change the future for young people!
At GPS Education Partners, we bring together the right resources to invest in and develop tomorrow’s technical workforce. We connect education and the manufacturing industry to offer a customized, accelerated, and outcomes-based model that goes far beyond traditional youth apprenticeship.
We empower high school juniors and seniors with the coursework, job experiences, and employability skills to launch and advance technical careers. We help them prepare for these careers more quickly, more thoroughly, and more successfully than any other traditional pathway.
Our work is timely and important. Advanced logistics and new technologies have resulted in a resurgence of American manufacturing, but two-thirds of manufacturing companies face moderate to severe shortages of qualified workers. There is a huge disconnect between young people who don’t have direction or support and the businesses who need skilled workers.
Ultimately, we equip our students with a vision and a plan for the future. The result? They emerge from GPS as leaders ready to take on today’s challenges and tomorrow’s opportunities.
Your gift will help us grow significantly in the year ahead. Our goal is to more than triple our reach to 1,000 students by fall 2018. This exciting growth will include expanding our reach to freshmen and sophomores and identifying new industry pathways beyond manufacturing.
