The August Group Expands... Reaching Out to Millenials

Effective February 6 and each Wednesday thereafter The August Group in cooperation with Medaille College and 4C Choices will offer a special program for students and recent graduates. Greg Taylor, the Founder of The August Group and 4C Choices will moderate these new sessions.


The Millenials' Challenge

The challenges faced by college graduates since 2009 have been overwhelming in this economy. Unemployment rates of graduates with 4 year degrees have ranged from 72-80% within three months of graduation and it improves little over time. Last spring the Bureau of Labor Statistics cited that 53.6% of those 25 years old and younger with 4 year degrees were either unemployed or in a job requiring no education. They face student debt that is staggering.

Target Audience

We welcome recent graduates of both college and high school and students in either college or high school. We encourage you to spread the word about this new program offering of The August Group.

Program Offerings

We will offer networking, training and frequent guest speakers including local career advisors, networked professionals, recruiters and employers. Job search and career exploration topics will be addressed frequently. We will provide direction and connections while building skills and confidence.

The Schedule

The scheduling will alternate on a weekly basis.

  • Luncheon sessions - 1st, 3rd and 5th Wednesdays - 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

  • Evening sessions - 2nd and 4th Wednesdays - 4:00 p.m. to 6.p.m.

Special Events

We'll offer special events on a monthly basis at various locations around the county.

Integration with Other August Group Programs

These young professionals will be encouraged to integrate into the mainstream TAG programs as they seek to integrate into the workforce. It is hoped that the generations will blend and benefit sharing insights and perspectives.
