Refreshed Mission, Vision & Purpose Statements!
Updated: Mar 7, 2022
After reflecting on the success of our first year, we've updated the way we talk about what we do, where we're headed, and why. And we think we've nailed it. I hope you think so, too!
Our Mission: Eleven+ disrupts systemic inequality by providing underserved students with access to transformative, paid internship experiences that get them to even and beyond.
Our Vision is equal access to formative work experience not limited by economic status, geography, or the legacy of structural racism. If Eleven+ is successful, students from disenfranchised communities will have the opportunity to succeed as far as their drive, talent, and ambition take them.
Students from underserved and disenfranchised communities often lack the access to internships which are critical in building skills and creating networks. Eleven+ levels the playing field, ensuring these students can get great paid internships doing formative work. As a result, young people gain applicable skills, valuable experience, and a network of mentors and peers that are critical to future success in the workplace.
