Building Economic Bridges to the Future through Educational Outreach to At-Risk Youth
Here is the latest news on the WLS 2019 panel hosted by Ms. Anjum Malik,:
The panel will highlight the growing demand on students to add character traits and competencies that are uniquely experiential. Learning done outside the classroom is gaining increasing importance for future work. How will the global society and local communities support students to maintain access to an environment that can provide them with opportunities to gain these intrinsic skills when so many of them are constrained and facing unparalleled disruption in their lives
How can educational stakeholders respond to the growing number of youth and adults who are losing access to education both inside and outside the classroom. The hard and soft skill development synergies that are necessary to succeed in today’s workforce require an integrated education system that is not available to the millions who are marginalized and/or displaced.
The panelists will reaffirm the case for diversity and inclusion and share best practices.
