Building Postsecondary Pathways For Opportunity Youth

03/27/2015 12:00 PM - 01:30 PM ET


Capitol Hill Forum


According to research by Georgetown’s Center for Education and the Workforce, it is predicted that by 2020 approximately 65% of all available jobs will require some postsecondary education or training.   Yet, there are young people who are being excluded from these opportunities because they are not on a pathway that includes education and workforce training that will adequately prepare them for these jobs.      

Join us for a discussion following the release of AYPF’s reports on Postsecondary Pathways for Opportunity Youth in Connecticut and Michigan.  The AYPF staff will be joined by with leading practitioners and advocates from these states to discuss the challenges and opportunities of this work.  AYPF will offer a brief summary of the reports and key takeaways for a national audience and our panelists will engage a discussion around their work, policy recommendations, and strategies moving forward.

Presenters include:

Michele Corey, Vice President of Programs, Michigan's Children

Kristin Harrington, ‎Senior Director of Talent Enhancement, Kinexus Workforce Development Division 

Bob Rath, President & CEO, Our Piece of the Pie


This forum will be held in Washington, DC.
