About HERE to HERE
Enhancing Pathways through Powerful Partnerships.
HERE to HERE links employers, educators and diverse community stakeholders in concerted action to enhance career pathways for young people in low-income neighborhoods.
Beginning with 10,000 young people in the Bronx, we are demonstrating a powerful new approach for equipping an entire generation with the knowledge, skills, experience and social capital that lead to lifelong success.
Through partnerships, we are amplifying proven best practices to drive systems change that will help all young people access family-sustaining careers and choice-filled lives.
Why We Do What We Do
U.S. employers are struggling to effectively match talent to the right opportunities and to develop predictable recruitment pipelines so they can grow. Yet millions of young adults who could potentially fill those well-paying positions are not gaining the skills and networks needed to attain them. Here in New York, companies in robust industries like healthcare, finance, and tech remain disconnected from talent pools located in their own backyard.
At the same time, promising programs exist within and outside the Bronx to support young people in building their futures. But they often operate in isolation or only reach a few individuals who happen to be in the right place at the right time.
