HERE to HERE was born from a question: In the Bronx, student after student, upon finishing high school and/or college struggles to find access to a career. What would it take to change that trajectory?
Since 2017 we have worked to answer that question, bringing together students, educators, employers, community members, parents, experts, and allies to establish new models that connect students to family sustaining careers. Through our initiatives and partnerships, students gain real-world experience through meaningful work, educators partner with employers and community-based organizations to connect classroom learning with work-based learning opportunities, and employers build a diverse, local talent pipeline that is prepared to contribute and succeed on day one.
In five short years, HERE to HERE—together with leaders like you—has echoed the voices of champions to fight for equity and create new avenues to career success.
Read on to see how you’ve contributed to Equity in Action.
