PCC's main objective is getting underserved individuals employed. This aspect of PCC can be project-based, agency-based, or company-based. PCC vets and places employment candidates. Through our social capital networks, we find positions for the ready-to-work candidates and place them according to their skill set.
Project Community Capital® (PCC) is a economic empowerment platform that connects people in underserved communities with jobs. PCC bridges the social capital of employment decision-makers of companies with individuals in low-income communities. PCC ensures that subcontractors who have socio-economic goals can meet their requirements by connecting them with individuals who are “Ready-To-Work”.

Outreach starts with leveraging the existing social capital within a given community. We reach out to trusted community leaders as a bridge to connect with residents. Outreach meetings and pre-screening interviews are then held at a local community venue where residents have easy access.
Contractors claim they cannot find anyone reliable to work on their construction project and they are given a pass. Meanwhile, individuals who are reliable, trustworthy, and ambitious, who can actually hold a job, don’t even know the job exists.
Employers utilize PCC to fulfill their employment needs. Sub-contractors serve a core function as a user. Often, they suffer financial and reputational penalties by not meeting their socioeconomic goals. PCC can help alleviate this impact, making it easier to deliver their construction projects at a lower cost and without significant employee turnover.
By connecting ready workers to job opportunities, individuals can increase their earnings and provide a more stable life for themselves and their families. Low-income individuals can obtain stable employment, earn more income, and develop their social capital.
