New LinkedIn Partnership for Youth
Engage In is a LinkedIn for Good initiative launched to tackle the issue of global youth unemployment and NOVA was selected as the local partner in Sunnyvale to participate in this exciting endeavor. The local Engage In Leadership Team is now working with NOVA youth program staff to develop a plan to support underserved youth in this community. LinkedIn employees will then volunteer over the course of the year as LinkedIn coaches and mentors for youth in the NOVA program. A kickoff event was held at LinkedIn on April 2, with many interested LinkedIn employees in attendance.
Over the past year, LinkedIn has awarded NOVA two grants and hosted a community day for NOVA’s job seeker customers to assist them with job search tools. This new partnership will add value to these contributions and ensure that this community’s young people have the right opportunities to achieve fulfilling careers, become contributing members of their community, and attain a better quality of life.
