New Options New Mexico

Through a subcontract with Monster Government Solutions, New Editions provided program management to New Options New Mexico, a pilot program designed to increase the aptitudes, employability and employment rate of young people in New Mexico. Innovate+Educate received a multi-million dollar grant from the W.K Kellogg Foundation to unite local industry, nonprofits and community colleges together in a cyber-based pilot initiative to help young people in New Mexico find employment and advance their careers. To support this effort, Innovate+Educate contracted Monster Government Solutions to develop a Monster platform-based career and education site with a customized skills matching feature developed using ACT WorkKeys®, as well as a customized Short Message Service (SMS) feature that allows access to the site via cell phones.
