2021-22 Career Readiness Community of Practice

In this year’s virtual Career Readiness Community of Practice* we will dive more deeply into creating a CULTURE of career readiness for your school district. Each month we’ll focus on developing a career readiness culture from a different angle. Participate only during the months that feature the topics you need! Here’s what you can expect every month:

• Expertise with leaders or peers who will share their experiences and strategies

• Breakout room discussion where you can further explore the topic with other school districts and brainstorm challenges together
