Systems Change: New Profit’s Learn to Earn Initiative
Learn to Earn is New Profit’s postsecondary and career strategy that delivers mutually reinforcing initiatives across the continuum of K-12 to mid-career. We see opportunities to equip all students with the education, skills, and opportunities needed to be career-ready – including the advent of more engaging technologies, hybrid supports, and shifting views among employer leaders about their training roles. But no single innovator can overcome the existing barriers and redefine what is seen as possible for low-income and underrepresented students. Learn to Earn is building a networked community of diverse innovators, systems leaders, funders, and learners to create holistic solutions that equip learners from low-income and underrepresented backgrounds for economic mobility.
We must focus on the social impact of seismic Future of Work shifts, because today the speed of change is far outpacing the solutions available to help people, especially the most vulnerable, learn and adapt.
