The Mike Rowe Works Foundation is on a mission to help close the skills gap by challenging the stigma and stereotypes that discourage people from pursuing millions of available jobs. We’re proud to boast their mission as loudly as we can.
“We’re redefining the definition of a good education and a good job, because we don’t think a four-year degree is the best path for the most people. We want people to understand the impact of skilled labor on their lives, and we’re convinced that the solution has to start with a new appreciation for hard work.” (https://mikeroweworks.org/about/)
“Our crumbling infrastructure, our widening skills gap, the disappearance of vocational education, and the stratospheric rise in college tuition—these are not problems. These are symptoms of what we value. And right now, we have to reconnect the average American with the value of a skilled workforce. Only then, will the next generation aspire to do the work at hand.” – Mike Rowe
