Career exploration and preparation is critical to the future success of all young people. A young person’s first job exposes them to significant learning experiences, financial independence, and the tools necessary to build a career path. However, not all young people are equally equipped to navigate and access meaningful career paths due to a lack of exposure to possible careers and pathways, lack of preparation in school, and barriers to employment.
Educurious works with national, regional, and local partners across the private, public, and nonprofit sectors to create paid job experiences for young people ages 14-24. Our youth employment work focuses on:
- Providing paid internship and job opportunities for young people facing significant barriers to employment.
- Advising employers interested in partnering with education programs, teachers, schools, and youth-serving organizations in order to better prepare and educate our future workforce.
Help us create meaningful career experiences for young people. Learn more about our two youth employment initiatives below:
