I work with young adults between 17 and 24 years old who are out of school and out of work, and who face multiple barriers to employment. My goal is to engage the private and the social sectors in a collaborative process for training these young people for entry-level position in areas of technology that have high employee turnover rates; and that require mid-level, technology, skills that are not being taught in school or by employers. We have developed a business case for graduates of our Digital Printing & Document Imaging training program that demonstrates hiring our graduates can save employers between $1,400 and $4,700 for each new hire. These are not tax credit. They are actual saving in personnel costs. I'm interested in meeting people who might consider incorporating this technical training into their high school or community college, and employers who are interested in learning more about our model to determine whether their organizations can benefit from our approach.
