Propel America

Our Model

Our Model

Propel America helps recent high school graduates (aged 18-24) move into a career and higher education. We make it easier for young adults to build a clear path to upward mobility, and we do this by connecting high schools, job-training organizations, colleges, and employers. 

Propel consists of three phases: 

  1. Core, a class held in high schools or post-high school graduation bootcamps,
  2. Specialization, when students (we call them fellows) train for specific career paths;
  3. Transition, which involves applying for and moving into jobs with Propel’s employer partners. 

Throughout this process, fellows receive ongoing support and coaching from their local Propel team. fellows train at no cost to them, and they receive stipends to help meet basic needs while they train.
