Catalyze Challenge: Rewarding Innovation in K-12 Career Development

Catalyze is a collaborative funding engine that awards prizes for innovative, early-stage models that leverage career-connected learning to support students in accessing living wage careers. The Challenge funds programs along three thematic areas of focus: 1) Real-world learning and career exposure models that allow students, especially in early years, to develop career identities, wherever students can be most effectively served; 2) Innovative models that prepare students for post-HS transitions to family-sustaining jobs and careers; 3) Earliest stage radical, out-of-the-box proposals that have the potential to transform how we effectively prepare America’s young people for their careers. Join the panel as they discuss the program and hear from Catalyze Challenge winners on their innovative solutions and impact they are driving with students around the United States.
