Community Investment and Scaffolding: Providing a Social Safety Net

Income inequality and education disparity between the middle class and the underserved has grown more pronounced over the past several decades. Children born into poverty today have little opportunity for social mobility and are often not supported by or exposed to basic educational building blocks or fundamental health information. This discussion will focus on the role and responsibility of the private sector to help improve public health and schools through career technical education, community support, and mentoring.
