The need for developing learning expertise does not end at graduation. To paraphrase Alvin Toffler, the future will belong to “those who can learn, unlearn, and relearn.” In that spirit, CAST is expanding its mission to include a focus on workforce development in order to ensure all youth and adults enjoy equal access to employment and post-school learning opportunities. Join staff from several CAST departments as they explore the state of the field in workforce development, current legislative priorities, funding and collaboration opportunities, and much more.
