Program Information (open ended):
When did your company begin working with young adults ages 16-24 who are currently or at risk of being disconnected from school and work?
Tell us about your company’s program. How does it work and how does it help at-risk youth move forward in the career pipeline?
Why did your company decide to make this investment? Please describe any specific business challenges (talent development, growth, etc.) that motivated your company to start the program. Any insight into your PR goals/challenges is helpful to know.
In what specific areas are the youth contributing within the company and what role(s) are they being trained/hired for?
What have been the business outcomes (such as number of hires, increased retention rates, interview-to-hire ratios, etc.)? Please provide any metrics you have been tracking.
Please describe how the program has changed or evolved over time. What is different today than when the program was first launched? What has your company learned?
Have there been any secondary benefits realized by your company and if so what are those? For instance, have the youth contributed to your corporate culture in a particular way?
Is there anything you want to share about your company or the program that you didn’t share above? Anything interesting about how or why your company got started or its commitment to the community?
