An up-close and inspiring discussion series about solutions in context.
Jordyn Lexton is a 2015 Echoing Green Fellow and founder of Drive Change, a fellowship program that uses a food truck to provide workplace experience and continued education to formerly incarcerated young people ages 18-25. By the end of their fellowship, participants have built workplace skills, gained professional experience, and are infused with a sense of self-worth.
Jordyn was joined in conversation by Devita Davison, executive director of FoodLab Detroit.
UpStart is hosted monthly(ish) in partnership with others who care about social change.
This UpStart is a segment of a special series of events presented as part of The Partnership for Innovation for the Future of Work in New York City, powered by Barclays.
