Chamber Forum: Governor Jay Inslee will Keynote Thurston Chamber’s November Forum
Governor Inslee will address the topic of Career Connected Learning. Don’t miss this discussion about the critical topic of the competitiveness of employers in Thurston County.
What is Career Connected Learning?
Career connected learning can be as simple as a business person visiting a classroom, talking about what they do. Or a job shadow where a young person learns more about an occupation or business. Or in some cases, it can be an internship, or a registered apprenticeship, where youth are paid while they learn hands-on skills.
"We are going to stop telling our kids that a four-year degree is the only path to success. Most of them will require education and training after high school, but that doesn’t necessarily mean a four-year college degree. Through registered apprenticeships, technical training programs, and other career connected learning opportunities, we’ll give students all kinds of ways to fulfill their dreams of helping build airplanes, cure diseases, or design innovative new software."
- Governor Jay Inslee
