The Human Capital Theory

Our Philosophy

Communities are about people. We believe human-to-human relationships should be at the center of our approaches to challenges and opportunities. When people channel their ideas, energy, and skills into community building the results are transformative.


Our goal is to make social and economic impact

The ideaWe help local businesses and organizations reach their goals, while challenging them to cultivate talent from communities that need economic development the most

Our approach: Connecting people, businesses, and institutions in ways that develop human capital and encourage economic stability

How it works: We match people with opportunities to contribute to community based economies. This means we...

  • In exchange, businesses and organizations agree to hire, mentor, and/or apprentice local talent
