expand learning pathways

We are working with communities to grow the availability and accessibility of accelerated training that leads to a career
— Sally Smyth, Director of Community Finance & Impact

There is an immense job training and education accessibility gap. Too many Americans do not know what the next step on their career ladder could look like. We are making information about training and education accessible to anyone who has the aptitude and motivation to learn to enable more Americans to take that next step. 

Fewer employers offer a clear pathway from entry level to management roles today than they did 30 years ago. Working your way up from the mailroom has become a fantasy. We want to ensure that it remains a reality by helping people access the training they need to level-up, either in their current job or in a new career. With the growth in online learning that is democratizing education, lack of access should not be what is holding people back.
