Students are offered more pathways to trade and vocational training.
In order to build up a talent pool and help our young residents self-actualize, we must build diverse and robust pathways that bridge the chasm between local education and local employment opportunities. While we don’t intend for every kid in our community to stay and set up their life right here, we want to ensure that they have the opportunity to do just that if they wish to.
We must create programs both inside and outside of the public education system to help students and residents skill up to meet the requirements of local jobs.
Our local employers should be partners in an effort to ensure that job demands are being met, and a healthy and well-trained set of recruits is being groomed to take over the next generation of high-skilled labor in our communities.
