CareerWise New York
HERE to HERE champions youth in The Bronx by bringing together business, education, and community leaders to build equitable avenues to lifelong career success.
Key to our work is identifying the systemic challenges students experience and leveraging our resources and expertise to do something about it. Establishing and incubating ambitious and far-reaching initiatives that can transform the way we think about work and learning–and ultimately change how we collectively develop talent–is one of the ways HERE to HERE mobilizes people and organizations to create paths to rewarding careers for young people.
HERE to HERE launched and incubated the HERE to HERE Business Council and CareerWise New York with the intention to scale both into self-sustaining entities supporting youth talent development in The Bronx and NYC.
As a result of both initiatives’ proven track record of success, in August of 2020, 25+ CEOs from NYC Fortune 100 companies came together to launch the New York Jobs CEO Council. The Council absorbed the HERE to HERE Business Council and CareerWise New York, which is now an independent nonprofit organization aligned with the new Council.
The launch of the New York Jobs CEO Council is a great investment in New York’s future. The Council will scale work-based learning opportunities by partnering with the City University of New York (CUNY) and NYC Department of Education (DOE), as initially modeled by CareerWise New York. The establishment of the Council will additionally create opportunities for partnership between educators and employers that reimagine the local talent development system so that it works better for New Yorkers and NYC employers.
