KP Scholars is more than just a provider of services; for many of our partners our strongest value proposition is the role we play as integrator and manager of the talent pipeline. The KP Community Stakeholder Model identifies the various actors that are essential for developing talent and the role each plays in the context of a service delivery network. This demand-driven system ensures that our talent portfolios deliver to employers entry level talent that possess the required knowledge, skills and abilities in the most efficient and cost effective manner possible.


Our definition of customers are the individuals, students, scholars and mentees that receive talent development services. Public School Systems, Foster Care Agencies and Juvenile Justice Organizations are often the sponsors for these youth and therefore considered the primary suppliers of talent.


Educators and Service Providers deliver the value added steps required to advance our participants through the talent pipeline. These entities are generally academic institutions, government agencies, NPOs and for profit corporations.


Employers create the demand and specifications that drive KP's Talent Portfolios and Professional Maturity Model. This highly customized approach is designed to increase both the supply and quality of talent available. All organizations with a paid workforce are classified as an employer.

Funders/ Supporters

Funders and Supporters are institutions that share our commitment to developing students for the 21st century workforce. They provide financial assistance, guidance and access to their networks in support of our talent portfolios. They are generally government agencies, foundations and socially conscious investors.


These are the citizens and organized groups that live within the local community—they are committed to the successful development of the upcoming generation and those in need of mentorship.
