Will you be ready? 

In partnership with Citrus College in Southern California, the video “Success in the New Economy” was developed to help a broader audience be prepared for tomorrow’s labor market realities. The end result is a compelling case for students to receive both hands-on, technical training as well as theoretical, classic education as part of a balanced approach to life and career preparation. With over 110,000 views, the impact of the animated video has far surpassed our initial expectations.  It has resulted in conference presentations from coast to coast and the development of other customized videos.  America has a skills gap.  We must discuss education, workforce training, and policy changes that can make systemic shifts for the betterment of our regional economies.
