Preparing the Future Workforce: Transforming Traditional High School Models

1:00 PM – 1:30 PM EST

More and more students are exiting high school unprepared for college or a career.  What happens when we transform traditional K-12 models to align learning with the 21 century skills employers need?

By promoting stronger academic learning in additional to technical skills, the Ford Next Generation Learning Academies are preparing students to be flexible and adaptable to the evolving needs of business and industry.

Join NAWB CEO Ron Painter, Director of Ford NGL Cheryl Carrier, and National Program Advisor Rick Delano, as they discuss implementation strategies and outcomes from this successful model.  Learn how WIBs, economic development, and education have partnered to implement Ford NGL Academies, where high school students in 17 communities across the U.S. are gaining the tools they need to be successful contributors in the new economy.
