There will be 740,000 job openings over the next five years in Washington. Washington’s young people deserve an education that prepares them to take part in our economy, and real world, hands-on career connected learning is a key part of this preparation. Such preparation also equips employers with a workforce ready for 21st century challenges and innovation. (Click here for flyer.)

Please join us for Governor Inslee’s Summit on Career Connected Learning on May 31, 2017.  You’ll be part of a group of industry, policy, and education leaders working together to share best practices and policies to increase and strengthen career-related opportunities in high demand jobs for Washington’s youth. The Governor’s Summit is the culmination of an 18-month, multi-state Policy Academy, co-chaired by the Governor’s office and the Workforce Training and Education Coordinating Board.

SUMMIT GOALS:

• Inspire business, industry, labor and education stakeholders with actionable steps they can take in their own communities to support high quality career-connected learning and pathways to great jobs.
• Build a network of champions committed to supporting early, frequent, and excellent career-connected learning opportunities for Washington’s youth, especially those from under-represented populations.
• Highlight promising practices and programs in career-connected learning.

LOCATIONS:

We’ve made it easy for you to attend wherever you are in the state.   We’re using a dynamic regional model to ensure state-wide ideas and issues are addressed. The Governor’s Summit will be simultaneously hosted onsite in Redmond, WA, and at 27 regional sites around the state.
