Linked Learning pathways, regardless of industry theme, are preparing young people to succeed in the workforce. Even as COVID-19 begins to recede in some of our communities, it is clear that the healthcare industry is still growing and seeking highly skilled workers that represent the communities they serve. Linked Learning is preparing young people to step into these roles, in part thanks to the example set by the Oakland Health Pathways Project.
Happy Friday! In this week’s What We’re Reading, we share articles covering how school districts successfully navigated the COVID-19 pandemic, a new fund proposed to support students as they persist through higher education, changes to the College Board CSS Profile, and more.
The Linked Learning Alliance is pleased to announce the appointment of Fred A. Jones, Jr. to the Alliance’s Board of Directors.
The 2021 legislative session came to a close last Friday, September 10th. This week, we dive into some of the bills moving forward to Governor Gavin Newsom’s desk for signature or veto. These bills address key components of Linked Learning, including student supports, youth civic engagement, higher education access, and more.
