Helping Communities Work strives to increase and diversify the human capital endowment of the United States and its global partners. We facilitate capacity-building alliances among nonprofit, academic, government, philanthropic, business and arts and culture advocates for sustainable development.
“A nation’s human capital endowment can be a more important determinant of its long-term economic success than virtually any other resource. Human capital must be invested in and leveraged efficiently in order for it to generate optimum returns for the individuals and places involved and for the economy as a whole."
(World Economic Forum)
Helping Communities Work is also committed to workforce development. Our collaborations, which include banking industry associations through the Power of A, are guided by "Engaging Workforce Development: A Framework for Meeting CRA Obligations", a publication of the Kansas City Federal Reserve.
