Today, almost a third of our students nationwide leave high school without the skills necessary to succeed in college, to participate in a 21st century workforce, or to earn a family-supporting living. San Diego students are not excluded from this problem. In fact, there are 53,000 young adults in our community that are disconnected, not working or in school.
San Diego students are in need of a pathway to succeed in the real world. With the generous support and partnership of INFORM Journeys, the Classroom of the Future seeks to address this problem through the INFORM Journeys Project. The goal of the INFORM Journeys Project is to ensure that San Diego students achieve college and career ready outcomes when they graduate high school.
In the coming 2016-2017 fiscal year, Phase I of this project will include the following components:
- A summit on career pathways on September 20, 2016 for educators and business leaders
- Access to the powerful INFORM Journeys Map on the CFF website
- Virtual job shadowing experiences live streamed to students in selected schools
- Think tanks for teachers and business leaders to expand career pathways and linked learning knowledge
- A white paper on career pathways and linked learning research and the future of this initiative
Together, we can prepare our students to be our future workforce.
