The Power of Community Collaboration
New Mexico has traditionally ranked last in too many education and economic indicators – especially workforce development. However, The Bridge of Southern New Mexico combines the right leaders, resources and connections to make serious changes in the career readiness and workforce development challenges that undermine our economic future. The return on effort and investments made in those areas is already measurable and substantial.
There is great promise and potential in our young people. And there is great opportunity for New Mexico to propel itself from the bottom to the top of the country in their educational and economic outcomes. What they need from us is systems that work together and work for them. We want them to connect what they learn with what they can earn in their future careers.
