RAPSA will welcome Alisha Hyslop from the Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE) and Kisha Bird from the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP) in an exploration of how meaningful Career Technical Education (CTE) can impact the lives of low-income out-of-school youth.
Both presenters are advocates for improving career development offerings at the federal level. Ms. Hyslop will share research findings on ACTE's High Quality CTE Initiative. Ms. Bird is a lead author of CLASP's New Opportunities to Improve Economic and Career Success for Low-Income Youth and Adults.
Together, they will provide attendees with insight on how to improve CTE offerings and how quality WIOA partnerships can impact low income workers and communities.
This first RAPSA webinar of 2016 builds on the information that was shared at the 2015 Alternative Accountability Policy Forum. Join your colleagues in an interactive session that will add to your knowledge and strategies for making high school relevant for opportunity youth and creating incentives to reengage them in a meaningful high school program.
In addition to recent WIOA reforms, many states have begun CTE initiatives to make high school relevant for all students. California, Florida, and New York have initiatives to improve CTE in their schools. Learn how to develop or improve your program based on successful models.
