Supporting Youth Development and 
 Work and Career Success
Preparing youth for success in career and work is an important responsibility of the expanded learning movement. If we are to achieve economic equity, young people must have access to activities that prepare them. This means starting with activities for young children to build their “soft” skills and help make them aware of diverse career fields. It also means offering experiences for older youth that build their “soft” and “hard” skills and experiences in workplace settings.

Temescal Associates and the How Kids Learn initiative have two upcoming conferences that 

 focuses on Preparing Youth for Work and Career Success. Details below.
