Prepping our workforce is everybody’s business!
Join us for a morning of inspiration, learning and networking with key speakers and local leaders. The Rural Pathways to Prosperity Conference takes place at the same time, in over 15 communities across Washington State.
This event builds on the 2017 Governor’s Summit on Career Connected Learning, which was held at multiple sites across the state last May.
P2P uses a unique model to digitally deliver an expert keynote presentation to multiple sites across the state, followed by locally facilitated action plans and networking. P2P is a two-time national award winning program but more importantly, it is a statewide conference that allows more rural community leaders, businesses and members to work together and with resource providers without the expense of traveling to a traditional conference.
Brent will share rural best practices from across the country so you can inspire your community to create opportunities for young people to get ready for future career success while supporting businesses who are seeking a prepared workforce.
Chris will help you understand how to link to statewide career and technical education resources and opportunities for apprenticeships, internships, mentorships and other on-the-job learning experiences.
