Business leaders and employers, school officials and more are set to talk workforce development with children and parents.
The discussion will be held 6 to 7:30 p.m. Monday at the Cayuga-Onondaga BOCES building in Aurelius, according to a news release from the Central New York School Boards Association. People will be able to "discuss the future of apprenticeships and pre-apprenticeships, P-TECH programs, and Career & Technical Educational programming," the news release said.
Educators and program developers and representatives of the association and the Manufacturers Association of Central New York will be attending.
"Workforce development is not only crucial for the future of our president, it is vital for the sustainability of our local communities," the news release said. 'Young adults do not need to move away to find good job opportunities. We have many companies in this region that are looking for qualified employees and are ready to train them in prosperous career fields with growing future potential."
