THE AP FUTURE CAREERS INITIATIVE: IMPROVING LONG-TERM YOUTH OUTCOMES
The AP FUTURE CAREERS INITIATIVE is a vision developed through our founder's lived experiences to improve the lives, safety & long-term outcomes of creative, performing & athletic youth. These youth have diverse, international skills, talents, aspirations and perspectives, which are of great value to society as the world economy leans into digitization and struggles to meet very real sustainability challenges. But our education system's content & form is not equipped to reflect the demands of our modern society & the individualized pathways that are required to develop & nurture human skills. It is unfortunate that currently, creative, talented & performing youth often don't have the resources or opportunities to hone their skills or the know-how to apply them to long-term opportunities. It is of particular interest to society that, because of this educational deficiency these youth have long followed pathways that have led them into unsafe, unfair and exploitative working conditions that ultimately derail their long-term prosperity, education and career paths.
The AddyPres Future Careers Initiative seeks to support & enable improved education, life & work opportunities for creative, performing & athletic youth, connecting them to resources, experts and pathways that improve their long-term outcomes and society.
