Afterschool and summer programs across the country are helping to close the gap between the skills and competencies students possess and the needs of employers. These programs are addressing these needs by teaching students to effectively communicate, work in teams, and solve problems; connecting students to professional development opportunities; and helping them explore and discover new interests.
Join us for a conversation with Education Practice & Immersion for Credit, Sunrise of Philadelphia, and Minneapolis Beacons to discuss how their programs are helping students build fundamental skills for future success.
