Stellarworx is a faster way to match trained professionals who are Skilled Through Alternative Routes (STARs) with inclusive employers that are ready to hire.
Join Opportunity@Work CEO Byron Auguste & JFF President & CEO Maria Flynn at JFF Horizons for a conversation on what we’ve learned from the pandemic and how we can build a future that works.
Millions of Americans are locked out of better jobs simply because they lack a four-year degree. Yet these workers have skills that companies desperately need – skills they developed through military service, in training programs, at community colleges, on the job, or through other alternatives to college. It’s time for more employers to recognize and value individuals who are Skilled Through Alternative Routes (STARs).
At Opportunity@Work, we envision a world where STARs have a fair chance to achieve the American Dream — with fulfilling jobs, rewarding careers, and better lives for themselves and their families.
Here’s how we’ll realize that vision:
We are connecting employers with STARs.
We are connecting employers with training providers and STARs through the rapid scaling of our online marketplace which will make it faster and easier for employers to hire STARs.
We are accelerating learning and investment in support of STARs.
We are inviting partners to share insights, and test solutions on behalf of STARs, sharing what we learn with the entire workforce development field.
Stay connected as we work to expand career opportunities for STARs!
