The Hispanic Heritage Foundation’s (HHF) President and CEO, Antonio Tijerino spoke at the America Promise Alliance (APA)’s Ready for a Working Future: Leader Conversation hosted by APA and Citi Foundation. APA brought together leaders from national and local youth employment efforts, philanthropy, business and government to speak on how they lead and support the youth in their respective fields.
APA gathered a group of leaders to discuss the youth employment challenge and provide their perspectives on how they can support and lead the youth to not only enter but also succeed in the workforce. APA is devoted to helping to create the conditions for success for all young people, including those that are currently left behind. APA firmly believes that the youth are capable of learning and thriving and that all individuals and institutions can help young people succeed in the workforce.
