Our impact is measured by the outcomes of young people and how well-positioned they are to secure family-sustaining careers and choice-filled lives. We believe that ensuring positive outcomes for all students in The Bronx and NYC requires that we measure our impact not just on students themselves but also on the institutions and systems that educate, support, and ultimately hire students. Using specific demonstrations as evidence of what works, we advocate for practices, policies, and investments—the critical systems change—that better braid work and learning so that quality opportunities are accessible to all young people, not just a few.
Our Impact on Employers
A unified employer voice is critical to driving systems change:
- HERE to HERE has coalesced employer voice through two councils: The HERE to HERE Business Council and The Bronx Private Industry Council (PIC).
- Participation in these councils offers employers the opportunity to become producers of talent and inform in-school curriculum and training programs.
- Participation also opens opportunities for young people: collectively, the councils have hosted over 900 interns and apprentices through their partnership with HERE to HERE since 2017, contributing to a more prepared workforce, better-connected systems of work and learning, and codification of critically needed policy and practice change.
The HERE to HERE Business Council, which includes over 25 NYC companies with a multi-national footprint, represents a growing citywide commitment to building a better talent ecosystem in New York City through the embrace of new hiring practices and work-based learning models like HERE to HERE’s CareerWise New York apprenticeship.
The Bronx Private Industry Council, an employer-led, student-centered alliance whose membership includes over 30 Bronx businesses, connects employer members to the talent they need to achieve long-term business goals and creates internships and work-based learning opportunities for Bronx students — all of which help to build a bright economic future for the borough.
