BUILDING OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOUTH THROUGH THE POWER OF SOCIAL CAPITAL.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
A Social Capital Builder is an individual or organization who actively works to connect low-connected populations to opportunities for growth and advancement. A social capital builder believes in the power of the reciprocal nature of social capital building and strategically uses it to erase bias and misunderstanding. From this benchmark of mutual understanding, social capital builders bridge the gap between disenfranchised populations and businesses.
A Social Capital Builder acknowledges the realities of the hidden labor market and uses the power of social capital building to eliminate poverty on a micro (personal) and macro (systemic/institutional) scale.
A Social Capital Builder recognizes the value of workforce connections. Social Capital Building strategically and consciously uses the power of establishing and sustaining connections to promote economic achievement and mobility of underserved populations.
A Social Capital Builder recognizes the power of social capital to buffer racism, discrimination, homophily, and loneliness.
A Social Capital Builder advocates for the incorporation of a social capital framework into the current workforce development and/or educational system - from budget to evaluation.
A Social Capital Builder recognizes family engagement as an essential part of economic development efforts. Without active family engagement, an important key to social capital building is missing.
