Degrees of Separation Awareness Campaign

Many believe obtaining a college degree is the bridge to a successful career and other opportunities.  But with numerous college graduates currently unemployed, underemployed, and in student loan debt - many find themselves separated from the opportunities they expected. That’s why Degrees of Separation was founded.

Degrees of Separation is a campaign to raise awareness surrounding the issues of unemployment and underemployment among college graduates. It is our mission to effect change and find tangible solutions to help transform a generation of college grads plagued by these issues.
