Lead to Succeed is an INDUSTRY-DRIVEN youth leadership development program in which college students are trained to lead teams of high school students in high impact service‐learning projects that support local non‐profit organizations.
Our Mission is to develop fresh talent for both the workforce and for the community. We do this by engaging students in service-learning projects that also teach critical employability skills and expose our youth to the jobs that will be needed most.
My Life! My Plan! is a Milwaukee Talent Dividend-sponsored workshop geared toward exposing high school youth to a variety of large and small group activities that will help them connect the dots between education and career pathways. Business professionals are trained as "Career Coaches" to assist 2-4 youth as they take an online career assessment, and explore career pathways through various tools. A Milwaukee Talent Dividend workshop facilitator leads the coaches and youth through exercises about post-secondary education and training options that will help the youth formulate the next steps they should undertake to get ready for their future career.
The Milwaukee Talent Dividend and its My Life! My Plan! workshop are an initiative of the Greater Milwaukee Committee.
