OUR -CHANGEMAKER- MISSION
Connecting education and workforce in a 21st century economy to ensure our kids’ future success as healthy children, successful students, and productive members of the workforce.
Together, with business and education leadership, we do it differently - with a “whole person” perspective that addresses the economic and human impact of our rapidly changing world.
We address the two biggest problems facing business and education leaders in the 21st century: the SKILLS GAP and the MENTAL HEALTH CRISIS.
And we do it from the heart!
OUR -CHANGEMAKER- STRATEGY
We use a two-pronged strategy that blends mindset shifts and tangible programs––a top-down/bottom-up approach in which we:
Prioritize family & community as a key messenger on the frontlines with the future workforce.
Integrate a holistic STEAM education/skills into every level of of learning – highlighting high school Career Technical Education as a model STEAM program.
Bust through the stigma around mental health by starting conversations at home, school, and work that create a truly human connection.
OUR -CHANGEMAKER- PARTNERSHIPS
Now, more than ever, 21st century workforce readiness depends on streamlining new knowledge, awareness and resources to:
Business and Education Leadership who are collectively in the midst of shifting from a decade of economic disruption to a decade of transformation where we must realign education/skills with jobs to create a prosperous, innovative and competitive workforce.
Employees who want to feel they matter as a whole person with attention and care given to both their work and their family - especially as we emerge into our post-pandemic world.
Teachers who already manage a myriad of social, emotional, cultural, economic, family and community needs that now include a changing workforce-readiness landscape.
Students caught in a tidal wave of change between the 20th and 21st century economy amid confusion about how we connect the dots from school to career.
Family & Community who are key influencers on the frontlines with the future workforce and play a pivotal role in connecting the dots between education and jobs.
