Labor Day Message: Alex Taghavian of the Linked Learning Alliance

Yesterday we celebrated the nation’s 121st national Labor Day. Over a century ago the labor movement created and advocated for Labor Day, a day dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. Today, we continue to celebrate the commitments and contributions of the American workforce. Further, we must also recognize the importance of providing opportunities and resources to our youth – the future laborers and drivers of our businesses and economy. 

By bridging the gap between employers and students, LaunchPath helps prepare and equip Linked Learning high school and community college students with the experiences and skills they need to successfully enter the workforce.  

Thank you to all our LaunchPath business partners for their commitment to mentoring students and investing in the future of our economy. A special thanks to our most recent partners: SBM Management Services, Sacramento Regional Builders Exchange, Sac Steps Forward, Florin Road Partnership and Sacramento Republic FC for your leadership and vision for the future.
