Mike, Brandon, and Dan welcome in Dan Gonzalez, co-founder of District C, to the show. Distric C is a non-profit focused on workforce training and real-life learning for high schoolers through partnerships with local businesses. We discuss what employers and managers say most new hires are missing and how students can get a head start on workforce preparedness. Dan Gonzalez discusses how important using real world businesses problems and teaming with diverse teammates is to the learning experience of District C scholars. What can students learn from these encounters? How can intergenerational connections help grow the students’ and their corporate partners’ perspectives? All that and more on this week’s Trending in Education.
