WASHINGTON, WASHINGTON, D.C., UNITED STATES, December 9, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — INAUGURAL CLASS OF HBCU NATIONAL CENTER FIRST TO GRADUATE

Pictured (left to right): Kyle West, Grambling State University; Nina Jones, Kentucky State University; Anyiah Chambers, Kentucky State University; Dayna Kent, United Negro College Fund; Malik Singleton, Harris-Stowe State University; Deja Mayfield, North Carolina A&T State University; Brionna Greer, Kentucky State University

First Six of One Hundred and Seventy-Five Students on the Ladder to Leadership

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) December 8, 2021 – This Fall, six students from four colleges lived at the HBCU National Center on Capitol Hill while completing internships for distinguished members of Congress.

The Center was established in 2021 to foster experiential learning, mentorship, and networking for students attending historically black colleges and universities.

The Foundation awards each participating school at least one $5,600 housing grant per academic semester to address the lack of diversity in the intern population and structural inequity of housing costs by getting next-generation leaders to the resource ladder in Washington— and then, getting them up on it. In addition to the housing grant, the Center assists in placing the participating students in an internship and connects them with a local alumni mentor.

At the Center, the inaugural class of students participated in professional development activities which included a reception for Delegate Briana Sewell, a tour with the president of the National Press Club, and AP, Speaker Series with Rep. Cheri Bustos, and Career Night, among others.

Graduating in the inaugural class are the following students:
• Anyiah Chambers, Kentucky State University, interning in the office of Congresswoman Nanette Barragán
• Brionna Greer, Kentucky State University, interning in the office of Congressman Jim McGovern
• Nina Jones, Kentucky State University, interning in the office of Congresswoman Chrissy Houlahan
• Deja Mayfield, North Carolina A&T State University, interning in the office of Congresswoman Alma Adams
• Malik Singleton, Harris-Stowe State University, interning in the office of Congresswoman Karen Bass
• Kyle West, Grambling State University, interning in the office of Senator Tom Carper

The Center was founded to provide students from underserved schools with resources that make an internship in Washington, D.C. affordable, access to career development opportunities, and a helping hand to the first step on the ladder.

Six students now return to campus to promote their professional experience to others.

ABOUT THE FOUNDATION:
The HBCU National Center Foundation was established with a gift of $1M by Honorable Jacqueline Lewis, educator and philanthropist. 30 years ago, Lewis founded Washington Intern Student Housing (WISH) and set up foundations to help struggling students.
This year, Lewis was inspired by President Biden’s call for diversity in the Federal Government and Mackenzie Scott’s gifts to underfunded schools. This initial gift provides for 175 students to participate. For additional information, visit HBCUNC.org

iPSE-U.S. Expands Healthcare Offering to Independent Workers in Michigan

DETROIT, MICHIGAN, USA, December 9, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — iPSE-U.S., The Association of Independent Workers (iPSE), an association providing the independent workforce with an equal voice in public policy and equal access to benefits and services, announces a newly expanded healthcare offering, in partnership with Sidecar Health, to Independent Workers in the State of Michigan.

With a long-standing view that people should work the way they want without putting themself, their business, or their legacy at risk, iPSE is a proponent and advocate for the independent workforce. Over the past several years, iPSE has partnered with iWorker Innovations, the association’s managed services provider, to secure benefits and services specifically designed for contractors. Yet, healthcare offerings designed to meet the needs of the independent workforce, and not attached to traditional employment, have been lacking- until now. 

The iPSE partnership with Sidecar Health is timely given the rising cost of healthcare. Unlike traditional insurance, which sits between the patient and the doctor, Sidecar Health members pay for care directly. As a result, members can see any doctor and may save 40% or more† on health care costs. The plans are high quality, flexible, and affordable. Members know what their plan will cover before they head to the doctor, and the plans work with any doctor. After receiving care, members pay their doctor directly with the Sidecar Health VISA benefit card.

Sidecar Health Access Plan has been available through iPSE in Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Maryland, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Arkansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Ohio, Utah, for just over a year, and now Camden’s home state of Michigan.

“The opportunity to bring healthcare to the independent workforce has been our goal at iPSE since inception,” notes Dr. Carl Camden, founder and President of iPSE. As the former CEO of Kelly, a workforce and staffing solutions company, Camden, states, “I realized that access to benefits for this unique workforce was limited, so I founded iPSE determined to change the policies and practices that limited their access. To have a viable healthcare offering for independent workers is a vision come true.” 

iPSE-U.S. is pleased to announce that enrollment is now open in Michigan.

About iPSE-U.S.
iPSE-U.S., the Association of Independent Workers, honors the millions of Independent Workers, Contractors, Consultants, Freelancers, Self-Employed, Gig Workers, and Small Business Owners in America that choose to structure their work around their lives fearlessly. iPSE-U.S. supports these workers with a political voice, industry insights, portable benefit structure, and an ecosystem of like-minded independent professionals.

About Sidecar Health
Sidecar Health is changing health insurance. Unlike traditional insurance, which sits between the patient and the doctor, Sidecar Health members can pay for care directly when they get it using the Sidecar Health VISA Benefit card. As a result, members can see any doctor, all coverage is transparent and members save 40% compared to traditional insurance. We believe it’s health insurance that’s finally fair.

The Thinkubator Launches Funding Campaign to Support Youth Internships and Cafe/Training Center During the Giving Season

The Thinkubator Cafe

Hector Castillo Carvajal, Don Carvajal Coffee

“The Thinkubator seek funds to support Bronx Youth & to build a Cafe/Training Center that prepare youth for careers in hospitality and entrepreneurship”

BRONX, NY, UNITED STATES, December 9, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Thinkubator, a Bronx-based innovation and workforce development nonprofit organization has announced the launch of an intense funding campaign during the Giving Season to support youth internships and the opening of a Cafe/Training Center in the burgeoning Mott Haven section of the Bronx. Since its inception, The Thinkubator has provided more than 300 paid internships to young adults aged 14-24 from the Bronx, Poughkeepsie, New York, and the rest of New York City. The organization launched a Youth Council that hosted a Bronx Borough President’s candidate forum in the Spring and has a research department that has produced policy briefs, research reports and consultancy to nonprofits and higher education institutions. The organization is committed to supporting youth and the community by providing applied work-based learning experiences that directly connect them to the labor market and/or post-secondary opportunities.

To further its mission, The Thinkubator would like to build The Thinkubator Cafe, a training facility that teaches program participants about the hospitality industry, business operations, and entrepreneurship. The Cafe/Training Center would be located at 128 Alexander Avenue in the Bronx and would also have a food pantry, host community events such as resume review and job connection days, and public conversations/talks about the state of the Bronx. The organization has partnered with Hector Castillo Carvajal of Don Carvajal Coffee to provide the coffee and help with teaching young adults about the coffee industry. The proposed model is similar to Reconcile Cafe in New Orleans and La Tiendita, the entrepreneurial training program of The Lower Eastside Girls Club in New York City. Both programs are replicable models that The Thinkubator is looking to borrow from its successes to support Bronx youth and local employers in the hospitality industry and related industries. The Thinkubator recognizes the gap between theoretical training programs and those that actually connect theory and practice. The Thinkubator Cafe will fill the gap and provide the practical, applied experiences for young adults seeking careers in the hospitality industry, business operations, and entrepreneurship.

“As a Bronx native, born and raised in the Mott Haven section of the Bronx, we did not have internship experiences available to us. We did not have the intense economic investment in our community instead we had acres of debris from burnt down buildings. We now have an amazing opportunity to ensure that Bronx youth are included in the intense revitalization and economic investment in the South Bronx. I’d like nothing but to see this vision come to fruition and we hope the community is able to support our organization, which is fighting to keep Bronxites in the Bronx and included in a local economy that is quickly moving past Bronxites” said Dr. Edward Summers, President and CEO of The Thinkubator.

In pursuit of this vision to support Bronx youth and build The Thinkubator Cafe, the organization is seeking financial support from the community, investors, friends, and family to train and support more youth and to open the Cafe by January 2022. COVID-19 has posed some challenges to investors and funders who initially committed to funding The Cafe. The Thinkubator is looking to fill the void left by investors but raising sufficient funds to support the vision of the organization. The Thinkubator has launched an intense funding campaign to support the initiatives. For more information, contact The Thinkubator team at contact@thethinkubator.org, www.thethinkubator.org, or check out the organization’s GoFundMe Campaign at https://gofund.me/4214dfca. The organization is also grateful for The Lit Bar (Bookstore) who have been an advocate for the creation of The Thinkubator Cafe.

About The Thinkubator

The Thinkubator is a Bronx-based innovation and workforce development nonprofit organization. We craft innovative strategies to complex local challenges that have global implications. The Thinkubator approaches our work with a racial and economic equity lens through three major areas: education, research, and community.

The Thinkubator Education provides education, career, and work-based learning opportunities for young adults. We seek to prepare diverse, low-income youth from the Bronx and similar communities to succeed in the workplace and the world.
The Thinkubator Research conducts research, analysis and creates policy solutions to complex challenges. It leverages its data collection and strong analytical skill set to provide strategic consultancy to education, nonprofit, public, and private sectors.

The Thinkubator Community concentrates on the intersection of issues that inhibit communal growth, development, and productivity and tackles them head on with the communities we serve.

Collectively, The Thinkubator provides a systematic approach to workforce, economic and community development, educational attainment, and combating poverty.

The organization’s vision states that The Thinkubator aspires to a world where young people from the Bronx and similar communities are trained, educated, and powered to bring their voice to business, organizational, societal, and world challenges.
