As of 2015, almost 15 percent of the US population was considered poor. This equates to over 45 million people, a number that has grown every year since the beginning of the 21st century. Why are so many people poor when the economy is booming and unemployment is at an all time low?


For many who face economic hardship, the answer lies in their opportunities to get a good job -- a job that fulfills them and provides a family sustaining wage.


INCO US seeks to accelerate individuals out of poverty and underemployment by offering training and accelerator programs aligned to the jobs of the future. We focus on emerging digital and green jobs, and facilitate learning so that our beneficiaries develop foundational skills and competencies that are essential in these fields.

Our ultimate goal is to launch each individual on a path to success by reducing their barriers to entry, creating a supportive community, and introducing the tools for success.

Unlocking talent

INCO US, formerly known as CALSO Community Inc., is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to breaking barriers and creating community for under served and overlooked individuals so they can succeed in the future economy.


Across the world there are people with incredible talent, ideas, and the desire to succeed. Unfortunately, for many of these individuals their ambitions remain just out of reach because of circumstances beyond their control: geography, displacement, poverty, a lack of access to education and resources,  race and gender.

Our mission at INCO US is to serve these individuals directly.

 

To do this, we design and implement workforce development programs prepare marginalized job-seekers for the jobs of tomorrow. For those looking to set out on their own, our acceleration programs incubate their ideas so they can innovate for the planet.
