In$ync bridges higher education and employers preparing “good jobs” for young adults who are pursuing training in high tech. Despite a norm that all youth should complete college in order to secure a well-paying job almost as many “good jobs” paying at least $60,000 a year do not require an undergraduate degree, compared to those that do. Using the Los Alamos National Lab and Northern New Mexico College as a case study, In$ync demonstrates how Associate degrees can propel individual upward mobility as well as community development. The model is similar to other ventures, such as the Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education and Credential Engine.
