Our Mission—Foster collaboration among business, education, and community leaders to prepare New Yorkers in diverse, low-income communities for the future of work and meet employer needs. Member companies are committed to working with our partners to create economic opportunity for New Yorkers by:

Removing barriers to training & jobs

Developing long-term, stable career pathways

Connecting students & workers with in-demand skills

Why?—Our economy and the nature of work are fundamentally evolving. Many New Yorkers—especially in low-income and diverse communities—have either been left behind or did not have the opportunity to keep up in the first place.

The future of New York City’s economy and workforce requires breaking down industry and educational silos and opening the door to local talent.
