How Youth Add Value to Professional Work & Workplaces


How do we deliver the experiential, career connected learning our students need? This cross-sector, multi-generational session will share details, insights, and work products to help unlock sustainable student <> employer engagement. Join students and facilitators from CAPS, One Stone, Portal Learning and professional partners from across sectors to dive deep into specific projects, how value was created and measured, and what needs to be done to build on early momentum in this space. Walk away with specific ideas and examples to bring back to your community!
