Workforce program Fostering Resilience: Career and College Readiness helps to advance the economic empowerment of Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) youth by providing them with access to the resources and support they need to succeed in their education and career endeavors, including:
- Providing access to capital: The organization may provide BIPOC youth with access to financial resources, such as grants, loans, or other forms of funding, to help them pursue their education and career goals.
- Providing access to non-monetary resources: The organization may offer BIPOC youth access to a range of non-monetary resources, such as mentoring, training, personal professional development, and technical business support, to help them build the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the workforce.
- Removing barriers to participation: The organization may work to remove barriers that prevent BIPOC youth from fully participating and succeeding in the workforce. This may involve advocating for policies and practices that promote equity and inclusion, or working to create more inclusive and supportive work environments.
