Silicon Valley "Build Your Future" Online Community Hub

This community hub was created in collaboration between NOVAworks and Roadtrip Nation, a career exploration nonprofit whose mission is to empower people to define their own roads in life. Through Roadtrip Nation’s award-winning public television show, bestselling book, and online tools and resources, storytelling is used to showcase inspiring career journeys around workforce development opportunities within Silicon Valley.

The new launch of the “Build Your Future” community hub will help aspiring workers in Silicon Valley to understand current and future career opportunities. The combination of high-quality videos, targeted resources, and a platform for leaders and jobseekers to share their own stories bring career opportunities to life.
