Economic Prosperity

All individuals should be able to achieve their full potential, no matter what boundaries may stand in their way. We believe knowledgeable, well-educated individuals have the power to shape opportunity, take control of their lives, and mobilize their talents on behalf of their communities.

The Wagner Foundation supports access to economic opportunity through training, apprenticeships, and other employment programs. To equip the next generation to find and create jobs of the future will require a creative approach to working with business partners, greater investments in training and skill-building, challenging systemic barriers while augmenting existing pathways to economic mobility.
