Sustainability Planning for East Harlem Talent Network

The Task

STRIVE International, in partnership with the East Harlem Community Alliance, launched the East Harlem Talent Network to help neighborhood anchor institutions hire local talent. They were looking for a financial sustainability plan that would set them up for long-term success.

 

Our Strategy

  • Vetted operating costs and identified earned revenue sources to diversify funding streams
  • Interviewed employer, government, and philanthropic stakeholders to understand interests in place-based hiring initiatives

Project Impact & Outcome

  • Recommendations to help this new network attract investment for their program. Years later, they’re still in business
  • Launch and ongoing success at matching East Harlem residents to local employment
