About this Event

Preparing Tomorrow's Workforce Today

October 1, 2019

6:30pm to 8:30pm

Best for: Students, parents and educators

Agenda

  • 6:30 to 7pm: Panel Presentation
  • 7:15 to 8:30pm: Choose your Breakout Session

Guiding young people through their journey from birth to the workforce has increasingly become a challenge for parents and educators. We know that the process of preparing students to identify and select career pathways is the responsibility of our entire community and that we must continually engage in cross-industry dialogue to share the responsibility for preparing our kids for their future.

Join us for this community event connecting students, parents, leaders in the workforce and educators to address how to help kids/students explore what is possible for their future career . We'll discuss current trends in the workforce, school, universities and non-traditional postsecondary programs. Participants will also examine ways to find career exploration experiences. Parents and students will have a chance to interact directly with:

  • Leaders from Chester County's five priority industries
  • Career Readiness Coordinators from local school districts
  • Leaders in Postsecondary Institutions
  • Leaders in Postsecondary Technical and Certification programs

Breakout discussion topics center around the new and future workforce in Chester County's five priority industries:

  • Agriculture, Animal Science and Food-Sciences
  • Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing
  • Environmental Science and Renewable Energy
  • Health Care
  • Technology and Communications
