Youth Today

face unparalleled challenges and unique opportunities as they prepare for life as adults.

New Ways to Work

has spent the past 30 years working with local leaders and practitioners to improve their practice, and to define better ways to connect organizations and leverage resources to prepare youth for the future.

Our World has changed dramatically in the past decade, and our nation’s young people are being left behind – without the opportunities, experiences, and support they need to enjoy successful lives as adults. Our systems and programs are fragmented and disconnected – too often focused on preparing young people for a world that existed a decade ago.

The Economy has experienced a structural shift, resulting in new patterns of job growth in the United States and around the world. We must reshape our educational and career development approaches to prepare and support all young people for these new opportunities.

At New Ways we help local youth programs, workforce and economic development systems, schools and social service programs, government agencies, and philanthropic partners work together in new ways to address the challenge of preparing the next generation of American citizens.
