Our experience tells us that well-prepared youth thrive in school, work, leadership and beyond.
Today, employers say their biggest obstacle to growth is an inability to find qualified candidates, and 44% of all U.S. employers report their greatest needs are candidates with essential skills. Located in nearly every community, businesses and employers know Clubs are the perfect partner in building a diverse, robust talent pipeline to meet evolving industry needs. Through career exploration, skill development and applied learning experiences, Clubs equip youth to be ready for great futures.
60% percent of jobs will require education or training beyond high school by 2020.
