Cradle to Careers AmeriCorps VISTAs
In January 2015, Louisville’s Mayor Fischer officially launched Cradle to Career to establish a systematic approach to eliminate barriers that interfere with lifelong learning and success. This system of integrated public and private services that begins in the early years and leads to post-secondary and career success will result in a skilled workforce and ensure all citizens have the opportunity to succeed.
The Cradle to Career AmeriCorps VISTAs commit to performing a year of service and are placed at partner organizations directly connected to this pipeline in order to engage the community, strengthen cross pillar coordination, and assist with implementation of key projects and programs.
Partner Organizations include the Louisville Free Public Library, Jefferson County Public Schools, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kentuckiana, Boys and Girls Club of Kentuckiana, StageOne Family Theatre, 55,000 Degrees, Jefferson Community and Technical College, KentuckianaWorks, Degrees Work, Louisville Metro Government, Greater Louisville Project, 15,000 Degrees, and the Louisville Urban League.
