Workshop to Enhance Career Pathways Programs

Gathering dozens of educators, YouthForce NOLA hosted a workshop earlier this month to learn how to build and improve Career Pathways Programs of Study across New Orleans schools. YouthForce NOLA shared a variety of resources, and third-party trainers as well as post-secondary dual-enrollment providers were on hand to share information.

Attendees found the workshop worthwhile with 100% saying they would use their learnings to influence Career Pathways Programs of Study at their schools; 94% saying it inspired them to pursue rigorous, regional, industry-aligned career readiness programming; and 94% saying it helped them understand the needs of industry to better prepare students for career success.

The next workshop on January 18th will take a deeper dive into YouthForce NOLA’s three high-wage, high-demand focus sectors: Digital Media/IT, Health Sciences, and Skilled Crafts.
