El CAJON, Calif., Nov. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The Cajon Valley Union School District is hosting, local, national and international experts during the two-day Future Through World of Work Summit, a virtual conference, produced by EdWeb and hosted from the newly created Cajon Valley Middle School Launch Pad, a library space transformation to career center reimagined for students, teachers, families and community to prepare all citizens for the future world of work.
Over two days experts will highlight their involvement in the development of the Launch Pad through strategic partnerships with American Student Assistance, The Office of Federal Student Aid, The San Diego Workforce Partnership, and the Classroom of The Future Foundation. Together, these organizations have provided funding, strategic guidance and resources to complement Cajon Valley’s World of Work™ career development and financial empowerment curriculum that is integrated into the Launch Pad.
The design and development of the Launch Pad has been led by The San Diego Workforce Partnership where labor market information and research is integrated with The World of Work™ curriculum. Students and their teachers, counselors and librarian accept a range of specialized missions to develop self-awareness, explore careers of interest, and develop plans to achieve their goals.
Through the Cajon Valley Parent University program, parents can join students in the career exploration process or join independently to work with coaches to explore their own career paths as part of a two-generational strategy in partnership with the San Diego Workforce Partnership career center network.
The summit is intended for superintendents, board members, teachers, librarians, foundations, non-profits, parents, career counselors, coaches, government officials, education leaders, and education journalists interested in learning about new approaches to preparing students for a path to gainful employment.
