Developing College Students of Color for Employment
GardHouse was established after learning that students of color have been graduating from college twice as likely to be unemployed for the last 51 years. We began our work to dismantle barriers in Charlotte due to it’s upward economic mobility ranking of 50 out of 50; meaning those born into poverty lack opportunities to advance.
At the time of GardHouse’s inception, there were no work-based programs that primarily focused solely on college students of color by leveraging minority-owned businesses or minority-led organizations to serve as the training hub for talent.
