CHANGEMAKERS: LOCAL, STATE, NATIONAL LEADERS

Converting at-risk populations into local assets

With a quarter of Americans either un-employed or under-employed, and many employers scouring for talent, there is a decisive role for you to integrate working learners into the productive economy as quickly as possible, while establishing their foundation for taking on greater skills and higher wages.

TO COME...

CONSIDER a public service campaign: 

help your most vulnerable constituents avoid the pitfalls of predatory lenders selling for-profit educational institutions with minimal standards and poor results. The latest data confirm that "non-traditional students" are the  single biggest determinant in the growth in borrowing and suffer the highest default rates on student loans.  

help poor, over-subscribed students redirect their focus to learn and earn opportunities so they can acquire new, marketable skills, secure jobs, and pay as they go through their modular education.
