The Challenge

Under-resourced communities in the U.S. face systemic barriers to learning, mobility, and progress. Core problems impeding effective workforce development include a widening skills gap, deteriorating job quality, and a lack of collaboration between players in the labor market. With an unprecedented digital disruption and adoption caused by COVID-19 comes a new opportunity to radically change the lives of millions of Americans.

How to Win
