What We Do

When students graduate, finding a job with opportunities for upward mobility is difficult. New college graduates are entering a challenging job market with lower starting salaries and increased competition for openings. Even with a degree, only 11% of C-level business executives have strong confidence in the “work readiness” of recent graduates.

ANY addresses the professional development gap for first-generation college students and is changing these outcomes.
