And increasingly, they’re seeking out more direct training and educational opportunities that support their ambitions. So how can we best connect them to more accessible pathways from K-12 to the workforce? And how do we use students’ interests, values, and strengths to drive their success on those pathways?We’ll talk to three visionary innovators in education and workforce development who are working to build career development ecosystems that create opportunities for young people to imagine their future selves. More importantly, we’ll learn how their community-based approaches put those visions within reach.
