Description

IMPROVING THE EDUCATION & WORKFORCE PIPELINE

Regional Meeting Sponsored by Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education, Valdosta-Lowndes Chamber of Commerce, and Valdosta State University STEAM Center

Consider these Georgia statistics…

  • Employer job openings have grown over 150% since 2010.
  • Meanwhile, we rank 34th among states for unemployment.
  • By 2025 – just 6 more years! – 60% of jobs will require some form of post-secondary education, yet…
  • Only 47.9% of our young adults have a college degree.

What does this mean for your kids, your family, your community, your business?

WHAT: Improving the Education and Workforce Pipeline – An opportunity for community leaders to see and hear new region-specific data, new analyses, and new strategies for strengthening your workforce pipeline.

WHEN: April 30, 2019, 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. (box lunch provided); Optional STEAM Center Tour, 1:45 – 2:15 p.m.

WHERE: Valdosta State University STEAM Center

WHY: As a community leader, you will have the chance to prioritize and plan for what’s needed to mobilize your community to work together toward improving chances for our students to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to build a strong workforce and stronger communities.
