STARs: Our Economy’s Untapped Potential

We envision a future where people are celebrated for the skills and potential they have, rather than defined by their lack of a four-year college degree. But today, millions of Americans are overlooked because they don’t meet degree requirements, yet they have valuable and verified skills that employers need.

We call them STARs – Skilled Through Alternative Routes – and we believe they are one of the greatest untapped resources in our country.
