Our vision is a thriving, inclusive economy, in The Bronx and elsewhere, driven by partnerships between young people and employers.

To achieve this vision, key employers, educators, and other stakeholders must align to create collective change that benefits young people, businesses, and communities. Too often, however, we discuss and make changes without engaging young people, despite the fact that these changes may affect them the most.

HERE to HERE amplifies student voice by creating opportunities for young people to weigh in on school, city, and state decisions that affect them, inform program and school design and become leaders of social and economic change that will create a brighter future for their peers and community. Student voice is central to HERE to HERE’s work to expand and enhance work-based learning and braid work with educational experiences.

Critical to this work is highlighting students’ work-based learning experiences, successes, and challenges. We invite you to learn about some of the brilliant students we serve and hear their stories.

Young People Leading the Way
