HERE to HERE believes a thriving, inclusive economy, in The Bronx and elsewhere, is driven by meaningful partnerships between young people and employers.
Our goal is to build partnerships and policies that help employers identify the talent they need to thrive and ensure every student develops the passion, experience, and professional network to succeed in a career of their choice.
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.
