THE DeBRUCE FOUNDATION LAUNCHES PUBLIC AWARENESS CAMPAIGN AROUND FREE CAREER READINESS TOOL
The Agile Work Profiler is a first step to expanding career pathways
The DeBruce Foundation has expanded a public awareness campaign to help youth in Georgia increase self-awareness in order to make more informed career decisions.
The campaign, which features young adults from The DeBruce Foundation Career Corps – including students at Morehouse College and Spelman College – and leaders from a variety of industries, is designed to drive more people to take the Agile Work Profiler, a ten-minute free online career survey that helps people discover their strengths and work interests. To date, more than 10,000 people have taken the Agile Work Profiler. Similar campaigns are also running statewide in Missouri and Kansas.
“Knowing your ‘Agilities’, or how your interests and strengths relate to work, can be really powerful because knowing who you are elevates you,” said Myles Tracy, a member of The DeBruce Career Corps and student at Morehouse College, who participated in the development of the public awareness campaign and is featured in the online ads.
“The Agile Work Profiler is a tool to help individuals expand their career options, rather than be limited to a narrow few. Expanding opportunities can be an economic game changer for students and parents,” said Dr. Charles A. West, Senior Consultant with The DeBruce Foundation, who is based in Atlanta and graduated from Morehouse College and Atlanta University now Clark Atlanta University.
