The San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) is supporting next month's Opportunity Summit as one of the ways it is working to help prepare students for the future.
The San Diego Workforce Partnership is organizing the summit, which will be held May 2 at Town and County San Diego.
Approximately 800 local and national education and business leaders will attend as they collaborate to increase opportunity and decrease poverty in San Diego County. The focus is on young adults ages 16 to 24 who are neither working nor in school.
"We all work every day to prepare students for their future – to help them acquire skills, knowledge, and the dispositions they will need to thrive when they leave high school and make their way through post-secondary education and into the workforce," said Peter Callstrom, president and CEO of the San Diego Workforce Partnership. "And while most of our students do thrive in the years after high school, too many do not."
Educators can get discounted admission if they register by April 18 with the code "educator_opp19."
