Talent Orchestrators: Scaling Youth Employment Through Business-Facing Intermediaries

This report from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation challenges the notion that employer engagement is only a civic or philanthropic venture and outlines how business-facing intermediaries can create shared value by matching businesses with skilled youth. Already, intermediaries around the country are stepping up to the plate by managing employer demand, equipping youth with professional skills and job-specific training, and facilitating the onboarding process to connect youth with employment opportunities.

The report provides a framework for intermediaries to engage and support employers through work-based learning. It includes nine design principles to help intermediaries create shared value, manage talent sourcing, and provide training and credentialing support.
