Mission: Graduate was one of five cradle-to-career partnerships that met regularly with StriveTogether and Living Cities to learn from one another as each community undertook unique strategies to support local employment outcomes. As StriveTogether writes, "The challenges associated with connecting youth and low-income residents to good jobs are many and varied. These efforts require high levels of coordination across government, education and business. StriveTogether teamed up with Living Cities on the Prepare Learning Circle (PLC) to support five communities engaged in this work. Beginning in early 2014, these communities worked to bring employers, educators and other partners together to remove barriers for workers and prepare them for high-wage jobs." This report shares learnings from the PLC.
