Our Approach

Identify and Engage Strong Partners

The challenges facing the U.S. and the world have become increasingly complex — no organization can tackle them alone. Bloomberg Philanthropies convenes and engages strong partners from across fields and industries who can break down complicated issues, innovate, and share solutions that work.

Approach in Action

The Career and Technical Education program collaborates with key partners like CareerWise Colorado in Denver and YouthForce NOLA in New Orleans to connect local students with exciting opportunities in the job market. Alongside local businesses, schools, colleges, and other nonprofit education partners, the program gives students the skills and the experience to launch their careers in growing fields that need their talent.

As part of the CareerWise Colorado program In Denver, students participate in an apprenticeship program, graduating with a high school diploma, associate’s degree, or significant credits toward a degree debt-free and with two years of paid work experience in career fields such as IT, financial services, and business operations.

As part of the YouthForce NOLA program, New Orleans charter school students have the opportunity to gain industry-specific credentials and serve in internships — all in high-wage, high-demand fields, including software development, emergency medical services, and engineering.
