Jobs Action Tank Dashboard
We know full-time jobs transform communities. As such, we launched The Jobs Action Tank (JAT) in 2017 with the vision of shifting the status quo of employment and career opportunities for young people from Dorchester, Roxbury, and Mattapan (DRM). Through a collaboration of partners across the city, key nonprofit partners committed to job placement goals for DRM youth and employment partners committed to hiring goals for youth from these nonprofit partners. There is a MAJOR talent pool in the heart of Boston employers have yet to tap. Our non-profit and corporate partners are deeply committed to hiring youth from Dorchester, Roxbury, and Mattapan (DRM). The situation is particularly dire for young people from DRM without a 2-year or 4-year degree. We must find new employment pathways with gutsy leaders, both in the non-profit and for-profit sectors. These employment pipelines will be critical in shifting the economic dynamic in Boston.
