By 2030, there will be an estimated 2.6 million new jobs across the healthcare industry. With diversity and equity a top priority for many healthcare leaders, it is essential that communities build strong pipelines of highly qualified, passionate young people to enter into a wide range of medical and healthcare careers. In Huntington Park, one high school is investing in the infrastructure needed to ensure their young people are ready to join the healthcare workforce.
A diverse, well-prepared teaching workforce with close ties to their community is critical to the success of young people, ensuring they graduate prepared for lifelong success. Across California, districts are meeting this moment head-on, committing resources to attract new K-12 teachers and early childhood educators to the profession as early as high school.
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.
