John Hogan is the founder and full-time volunteer CEO at TeenForce, a social enterprise dedicated to solving the youth employment crisis by meeting the hiring needs of business. TeenForce offers a business solution to a social problem. A self-sustaining, non-profit organization built on the staffing agency model, TeenForce provides employers with an opportunity to hire work-ready youth ages 14 -24 while also strengthening local communities. TeenForce delivers work readiness training, skills development, job placement services and career mentoring to ensure youth improve life outcomes through their employment experiences. As part of its Youth Jobs+ effort, TeenForce partnered with the San Jose Silicon Valley Chamber of Commerce to generate 100 jobs for current and former foster youth in 2013. Mr. Hogan also co-chairs the Opportunity Youth Partnership effort in Santa Clara County as part of a Collective Impact initiative inspired by the White House Council on Community Solutions and the Aspen Institute.
