BACKGROUND: Four years since the economic downturn, the nation’s unemployment has begun to climb again. Furthermore, the April 2012 Labor Department indicated that unemployed Americans were out of work on average for 39.1 weeks, leading over 522,000 people to give up the job search. In spite of the best efforts of myriad businesses and heroic individuals, more can be done to get the unemployed re-engaged and contributing again. After empowering tens of thousands of adults and teens to become engaged and contributing employees and community members, HeroSchool began implementing single-day Community Initiatives that immediately spark engagement and produce employment in days and weeks. Hero School® Initiatives have benefited many organizations, including The Shade Tree, CC of SN, CSN, SNRHA & CCSD.
