HOW WE STARTED
KALIEF BROWDER: Remedy Network began after hearing the devastating news of Kalief Browder's suicide in the summer of 2015. Our founder, J. Caleb Perkins, left his corporate job in an effort to begin an organization that would provide millennials with curated mentorship, equip them for their personal and professional development and decrease the amount of mental health related issues in our city.
CLICK HEADERS FOR RESEARCH & DATA
There are more millennials in NY than Baby boomers, and they represent 19% of the population.
A recent Gallup study shows only 14% of recent college graduates felt prepared for their workplace position. Research also shows a gap for environments where millennials can share in an intimate setting with like minded leaders, strong community and mentorship.
One in five New Yorkers have a mental health disorder, and at least 8% suffer from symptoms of depression.
There is a huge need for this dynamic segment in our city. Remedy seeks to serve this sector by hosting recurring events with a focus of three main goals as we continue our important work:
1.) Empower millennials by providing tools for personal and professional development by connecting them with industry leading influencers and mentorship.
2.) Serve as an incubator and sounding board for creative conversation and networking that builds community.
3.) Reduce the amount of mental health related issues in the city.
