Where and When Does Learning Happen: A Thought Leader Conversation with Karen Pittman
Webinar, 11/30/2018, 10:00AM
How can schools and youth development organizations better align to support the entire education ecosystem? Who are all the people in the local community who contribute to learning and improving outcomes for young people? How are these people trying to connect to their local schools? What are their interests and voices? On this special thought leader conversation, the Forum for Youth Investment’s CEO and co-founder Karen Pittman, who usually gets to ask the questions in this series of conversations, will offer her reflections and thoughts on the work of the Commission and the Youth Development Work Group, and how the ideas and concepts summarized in the brief can be used to strengthen alignment and collaboration.
