MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) – A Memphis non-profit who makes it their business to set young adults on a career path to success celebrated three successful years Wednesday at the National Civil Rights Museum.

The organization called The Collective Blueprint provides resources and a supportive network to young adults ages 18 to 30. putting them on the path to life changing careers.

The Collective Blueprint touts the fact that 2 in 3 of participants in their first group of participants earned certifications in IT, healthcare, and skilled trades.

Megan Morgan is one of those success stories and went from waiting tables to an entry IT job at ALSAC St. Jude.

“I received exposure,” said Morgan. “That’s the most important thing I can say. I was exposed to so many different avenues that didn’t necessarily require a college degree.”

Many of the businesses and schools who work with the collective to achieve these success stories were in attendance at Wednesday’s reception to affirm their commitment to the work of preparing young minds.
