Below, you can read about our plans and strategies.
It is a work in progress but we hope to secure the support we need for a pilot program by early 2019. Your help is welcome and support appreciated!
Here to Help!
We are a nonprofit organization focused on strategies that power movement to create positive change.
Today's challenges are complex and require complex solutions.
We are focused on strategies that create long term impact using short term, intensive programs that leave the world we impact stronger, safer, better for the future.
Imagine being born in the middle of a CornMaze. For generations, you and your family have only ever seen tall, corn stalks all around you. Inside the CornMaze, you have your own culture, rules, language, and expectations.
Would you know how to get out? If you got out, would you know how to behave? What was expected, how to communicate, how to succeed?
Without a path or guidance, survival instincts kick in and likely you find yourself back in the CornMaze. Each time, you get deeper and deeper into the Maze and your chances of surviving become minimal and eventually you give up hope - for yourself and your family.
Today's labor market is getting tighter and tighter. Needs are rising and resources are limited. Investments are being made in short term, temporary solutions, rather than long term, sustainable approaches.
Labor ready provides well rounded, low and semi-skilled labor trained in soft skills and trade skills to prepare them to be valued employees in various industries including construction, manufacturing, biosciences, health and beauty, logistics, warehousing and office administration.
We have developed a program that optimizes existing social enterprises to create a qualified, prepared, and ready workforce in support of companies seeking out-of-the-box solutions to solving their labor shortage challenges.
The end results are magnified but at minimum, uses an existing untapped natural resource of people, optimizes the resources of existing social enterprises for better ROI of public and private funding, reduces the high dependence on costly vis programs, keeps US investment in the US, creates career opportunities inside organizations to strengthen their foundations, and reduces dependency on social programs, improves quality of life for US citizens, and decreases potential victims and incarcerations.
We are developing a non-profit to support our mission but are open to alternative organizational structures that would allow us to implement the program successfully on a local, state or national level. These could include the creation of this program inside another non-profit, an appointed position within a government entity, foundation or corporation interested in developing a pilot program to create a proof of concept as a precursor to a larger roll out, or anything in between.
Our goal is pure - simply to create a space for change that is measurable, life altering and multifaceted in it's reach.
