At the Mentoring conference this week, I met Clarissa Unger, who is the Director of Partnerships at Young Invincibles (in case you read my last post, she was the presenter mentioned who was the only other one doing Millennial-centric research that I saw). I got the opportunity to spend a couple hours having Clarissa Explain It All to me (and yes, I’ve used that joke about a dozen times now, and am quite aware it isn’t funny anymore). That, followed by a couple more hours of online research, has led me to believe that Young Invincibles is a best-in-class organization for addressing Millennial issues.
Young Invincibles is a non-profit focused on economic, health, and job-related issues for the Millennial generation. Through education and advocacy, the organization works to bridge some of the societal gaps that I’ve talked about in the past. The organization works with politicians on both sides of the aisle, as well as US business leaders and researchers in a consulting function to help drive necessary changes to policies and practices.
