Imagine...culturally affirming career planning developed for youth by youth.

SHIPHT is excited to announce joining One Cedar Valley!! More information coming soon but be on the lookout for  
big news in 2023!

Why is SHIPHT important?
While Midwestern metros (Des Moines, Madison, Minneapolis) are often known to be at the top of the “best places to live” lists, they are also among the very worst places to live for Blacks. This tale of two cities belies a wide opportunity gap that lends to an index of racial inequality.  The twelve states of the Midwest census region (Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin) claimed eight of the bottom ten slots and swept the bottom five. Moreover, these stark racial disparities——create real and lasting barriers for workers and families of color in the Midwest. In one recent study, ranking the states on an index of racial inequality, the twelve states of the Midwest census region (Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin) claimed eight of the ten worst places for locations for racial inequality. 


We are on a mission to embolden diverse leaders for increased career trajectory in high needs career fields in career technical education and entrepreneurship.   The SHIPHT Youth Opportunity Accelerator was launched with an intentional focus on reducing achievement gaps to advance equity in the career readiness ecosystem with culturally affirming programming. In 2022, we are ready to dive even deeper! Our goal is to foster a more inclusive economic ecosystem to increase racial wealth equity, while fill workforce and innovation needs.
