Opportunity Wrangling for Equity and Inclusion

It’s not what you know, it’s who you know. And who do teenagers know? Networks matter.

But not all networks are equal, and the achievement gap continues to grow. This holds some youth back, impacting future employability and success. Learn how to leverage the social capital of your school to help build equitable networks for all students.
