World of Work Summit Scholarships Available to San Diego County Educators
A limited number of event scholarships are available to San Diego County educators to access the best ideas and strategies for ensuring every student has the tools to succeed in life at the World of Work Summit next month.
The World of Work Summit will be March 23 to 25 at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront with learning sessions led by state policy makers, business leaders, and K-12 innovators from across the country.
Scholarships to attend will cover the full cost of registration for school staff, district leaders, and school board members. Submit an application today as scholarships are available on a first-come basis.
The World of Work Summit has something for everyone. From elementary classroom strategies and middle school career centers to work-based and career-connected learning, attendees will walk away with practical strategies and a network of new colleagues to close the gap between our classrooms and the World of Work.
The event scholarships are possible through the Conrad Prebys Foundation, which supports youth success, health, medical research, and the arts in San Diego County, and the San Diego County Office of Education.
The World of Work Foundation is a nonprofit organization that aims to transform education to better prepare students for the future of work. The foundation works with educators, industry leaders, policymakers, and community members to develop innovative strategies and programs that prepare students for the careers of tomorrow.
