COOP ("ko-op") is a nonprofit in New York, California—and growing!—with one job: Launch 10,000 upwardly mobile careers in the digital economy by 2025.

In COOP's 200-hour Career Accelerator, peer cohorts of 16 motivated (but underemployed) college grads meet nightly for 16 weeks to learn digital skills, build community, and jumpstart careers in digital marketing and data analytics.

COOP has run 40 cohorts with 550 alumni in its first four years: 81% work full-time, earning an average of $45,000 in year one. Three years later, alumni earn almost $70,000, fully double the local baseline.

How do they do it?

Join us for a frank and practical discussion about what it takes to launch an upwardly mobile career in the digital economy.
