There was so much activity underway during the second half of this year to build the workforce of tomorrow that we couldn’t spare a moment to produce a fall edition of the Pittsburgh Regional Compact Quarterly e-newsletter. But no worries: we culled the array of activities and undertaking spanning September through December, and have highlighted a number of note in the newly released Fall/Winter 2011 edition.
Learn about how 100-plus young people from nine school districts had the opportunity to “get real” about the jobs and careers that pique their interest when they connected with real-world professionals at career symposia that have been called trailblazing. Get the scoop on how Energy to the Power of Pittsburgh, a public awareness campaign launched in September, is getting the word out about jobs and careers in an ever-burgeoning and in-demand industry. Find out what regional educators are thinking about how energy will impact the direction of career awareness and education in the region. And, in just about a minute, learn about how you can become a volunteer for Be 1 in a Million, the United Way’s newest mentoring program. It’s the largest of its kind in the nation, and it’s here in Pittsburgh – connecting adults with young people who need some extra attention to make it to high school graduation (or beyond).
All this, and more, is available right here. Enjoy your read of the latest Pittsburgh Regional Compact Quarterly.
