There is a disconnect between college graduates and workforce ready employees in the United States. Our failure to develop and sustain a modern workforce that will serve us now and in the future poses a real threat to the socioeconomic future of our country.

There is a demonstrative gap between what universities teach and what organizations expect. From our team’s many years of experience in technical industry sectors, we have found that:
  • The pace of classroom learning is slower than the expected on-the-job needs.
  • There is a disconnect with the educational mission and the operational/business needs of employers: is it to prepare students to enter the workforce, or to create subject matter scholars?   
  • The education system wasn’t built for today’s real-world challenges affecting the talent pool (i.e., student loan debt, changing technology, etc).

Embrace the Core Value of Lifelong Learning! 

Partnership to Prosperity inspires employers, educators, and job seekers–our stakeholders–to embrace the core value of lifelong learning, creating the foundation for a modern workforce where business and social interests intersect.

We develop innovative ways to form these partnerships so that all stakeholders benefit and
prosper from their participation in a learning ecosystem.


In order to align with today’s requirements, industries and skill sets need to change. Through assessing, planning, and executing, we are able to hone in on the pain points that key stakeholders experience. We then engage with educators and employers to develop synergistic, outcome driven solutions.
