Good Neighbor Initiative: Creating Change

As experts in education, Stevens-Henager College, CollegeAmerica, and California College San Diego launched the Good Neighbor Initiative in 2011 to help today's workforce for tomorrow's opportunities.

Each year more than one million Americans drop out of high school. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that by 2014, 80 percent of the fastest-growing jobs will require education or training beyond the high school level.1

People who have a high school diploma or GED credential are much more likely to be employed full time, and earn more than those without a high school diploma. Those with higher education are also more likely to live healthier, balanced lives and make greater contributions to their communities and economies.2
