Connecting Youth and Business: A Toolkit for Employers
Gap Inc., McKinsey & Company, Corporate Voices for Working Families and the Taproot Foundation
This toolkit is part of a larger effort, driven by the White House Council for Community Solutions, that focuses on re-engaging opportunity youth. The toolkit was created to guide employers, step-by-step, on working with opportunity youth, with the goals of
1) helping youth find pathways that will lead to productive adulthoods; 2) creating benefits to the businesses that engage opportunity youth; and 3) improving community outcomes which can lead to decreasing the financial burden now experienced by the
American taxpayer and the United States.
