Youth and Workforce Development
Subcommittees: Middle School, High School, Out of School
The Coalition's Youth and Workforce Development Workgroup focuses on analyzing data and developing strategies that reduce the dropout rate, and strategizes to bring about workforce development pathways for youth.
The group focuses on children and youths ages 9-24, making sure students succeed in school and graduate in 4 years, ready for college, work, and life.

"An educational system isn't worth a great deal if it teaches young people how to make a living but doesn't teach them how to make a life."
