Event description

Description

Explore your opportunities and begin your action plan for accessing up to $50,000 in funding to jump start career and technical education projects.

Career and technical education (CTE) is critical in helping students see themselves in the types of careers that are available in our rural communities. LYFT partners are working to help businesses, high schools, and colleges collaborate to provide shared opportunities for students to gain exposure and the skills they need to meet our regional labor market demands. Join us to learn from exciting examples of CTE collaboration!
