With our partners we are embarking on our most ambitious shared task yet – to support thousands of college-going millennials capable of demonstrating excellence while engaging with and volunteering in communities, thereby enabling them to make a difference in their local communities as Changebuilders. This will see a surge in the overall number of young socially responsible graduates with the skills required to be successful – both in achieving their own life goals and in their efforts to be part of change for the better.

Partner campuses are required to intentionally recruit students that mirror the diversity of communities in which projects will take place, and to design partnerships and sequences of experiences that are guided the following principles at minimum. 

NJBIA President Michele Siekerka,“The Changebuilders initiative can play a crucial role in providing college-going millennials’ skills that they cannot learn in the classroom … When we look forward to just the next three years, we know that there’s a demand for over 250,000 jobs in these fields,” she said. “We have a great infrastructure in these ecosystems, but if we don’t have the skilled workforce to support it, we can’t be successful”.
