Talent Hubs

Twenty-four communities across the nation stand out for their extraordinary efforts to boost education attainment among their residents. These communities, which have earned designation as “Talent Hubs,” connect businesses, educational institutions and community groups to help underserved students earn high-quality credentials beyond high school.  

“In cities, much like America itself, talent defines what a city is and where it’s going.”
 – Jamie Merisotis, American Needs Talent

Earning a Talent Hub designation is an acknowledgment that a community has both the capacity and ability to activate to make significant gains in postsecondary attainment.
