Launch Initiative moves to improve economy in Inland Empire
The Inland Empire Economic Partnership is bringing together local business, government agencies, schools, housing advocates, public health and human service experts as part of “Launch Initiative” an effort to improve education and the economy in the Inland Empire.
According to this article in The Sun newspaper, Mike Gallo, IEEP Board member and president and CEO of Kelly Space and Technology in San Bernardino said the program will help provide “stable housing for impoverished families, and connect them with their own life coach, which would be a mentor to provide them with goals, timelines and accountability, and guide them through the process of becoming self-sustaining and successful members of the community.”
The Sun quotes Gallo saying Launch Initiative will start with a pilot program of 100 families and 40 life coaches.
This effort is a good proposal that will address job training for adults who have aged out of the traditional educational system and has the promise of complementing the Countywide Vision’s Cradle to Career goal.
