Our Mission

Community Leaders Igniting Mobility

CLIMB is connecting leaders across our downtown Jacksonville neighborhoods: students and parents; educators and service providers; employers and civic leaders. CLIMB aims to bring the whole community of leaders together to identify, understand, and disrupt the roadblocks to mobility for citizens of Jacksonville. Together, as a community, we will climb to prosperity.

CLIMB Community Engagement Forums

The Community Engagement Forums will be organized thematically around the major stumbling blocks that prevent people from moving up the career ladder and together organizations and community members will explore how to help  improve these systems—community goods—that allow access and ease of use.  The launch event will be held on August 25, 2018 and kick-off a series of talks in September 27, November 1, and December 6. Generation and partners will host a culminating event to end the series in January. 

CLIMB Talent Innovation Summit

The Talent Innovation Summit will explore the employer’s role in economic mobility through trainings, conversations, and building networks with CSRs and HR and other representatives. Participants will identify internal interventions allowing employees greater mobility and pilot interventions within their companies.  The Summit will take place on Nov. 8 at the Jacksonville Omni Hotel, wherein participants will have access to many perspectives and thought leaders throughout the community. Register interest.
