Please join the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation as we launch our new initiative and report, "Workforce of Today, Workforce of Tomorrow: The Business Case for High-Quality Child Care," and explore the role of high-quality child care as a critical mechanism for strengthening the current and future workforce.
Opportunity is at the heart of the American Dream, and at the heart of opportunity is a job. When the right person fills the right job, we all benefit—families, neighborhoods, businesses. We all grow and prosper. Yet, there’s a disconnect in our country.
At the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation Corporate Citizenship Center, we believe that business is part of the solution to closing the skills and achievement gaps and filling the jobs that will drive economic growth. Our goal is to showcase how businesses are taking a leadership role in advancing student successes throughout various stages of individuals’ personal and educational development.
The research is clear: high-quality early education is a significant predictor of future success.
