The REDF SE4Jobs Accelerator brings together a cohort of talented employment-focused social enterprise leaders each year who serve people striving to overcome barriers to employment, with the objective of transitioning these workers into competitive, long-term jobs. Through the program, leaders receive expert guidance on core business competencies, employee support programs, and have the opportunity to build peer networks, ultimately helping them increase job readiness and long-term employment success for the people they serve.
