Grads Of Life Campaign Commitment Update


We are excited to announce our commitment as part of President Obama’s First Job Compact:
Grads of Life, a national initiative to catalyze market demand for Opportunity Youth by transforming employer perceptions and business practices, will work with at least eight employers to support the implementation of their First Job commitments by providing consultative services and program design assistance. Grads of Life will also release a business case framework and partnership management tool to help employers develop a successful Opportunity Youth talent pipeline.
Read our full post about the President's announcement and see the business case and partnership tools here.

The GradsofLifeVoice Forbes team provides thought leadership, research and expert commentary on innovative talent pipelines and related issues such as the skills gap, income inequality, workforce diversity, and the business case for employment pathways. We seek to change employers’ perceptions of young adults with atypical resumes from social liabilities to economic assets. This post was originally featured here.
