Create a Strategic Plan.

Collaborate with Teams Nationwide.

Shift the Paradigm in Your Community.

CAREER READY. PERIOD.

Delivering a dynamic competitive advantage for today’s young people.

The world has changed and today, purpose-driven education has become more critical than ever. Young people need to thrive in three key areas: academic knowledge, technical competencies, and professional skills. Together, these abilities create the single most important competitive advantage for long-term success.

Delivering this vital competitive advantage is the mission of Education with Purpose. Coast to coast, this national movement is energizing educational, business, and community organizations with a fresh vision for education, workforce, and economic development.

At the 2022 Education with Purpose: Take Action event, your team will be informed, inspired, and empowered to create a custom strategic plan. Through a facilitated planning process, you will:

Experience the power of the paradigm shift and the strategies to make it a reality in your community

Discover how to unleash the incredible potential of the younger generations

Collaborate with colleagues from around the country as you share your plan

Build greater understanding and gain insights from visionary organizations as they share their plans

Showcase your own best practices and successes

The conference’s unique cohort model ensures that every attendee is both a leader and a follower in the development of their plan—working together and individually to make a bigger difference in education, workforce, and economic development.

SHIFTING THE PARADIGM.

Empowering students and bridging the skills gap.

As America’s skills gap widens, now is the moment to shift the paradigm in education and workforce development. K14 and university career pathways must be scaled to meet workforce demand and expand the viability of our economic development initiatives nationwide.

Today, many young people are unaware of the many rewarding careers, opportunities, and educational and career on-ramps to achieve the future they want to experience. This is the awareness gap—and it’s where the skills gap starts.

Through purpose-driven education, students can experience many different career opportunities earlier in their journey. When they discover their career direction sooner, they can invest wisely and purposefully in their further education—whether that means a 2-year or 4-year degree, industry certification, apprenticeship, licensure, or any other specialized training.

This is what career ready, period means. And it’s what every student should experience.

Communities must plan strategically to bridge the skills gap and empower students with a dynamic competitive advantage. The 2022 Take Action event brings teams, individuals, and stakeholders together to create actionable plans for economic vitality and student performance.

WHAT MAKES THIS EVENT SO DIFFERENT?

Creating your own strategic plan.

FOCUS.

The event will open with a clear picture of the issues, strategies, and information needed to shift the paradigm in education, workforce, and economic development. By informing and inspiring each participant, this phase creates the crucial buy-in for organizations to start the next phase with everyone walking in lock-step toward the goal.

PLAN.

Dynamic, focused planning time will empower teams and individuals to create their own action plan for paradigm shift. A digital reporting platform used at the event will feature the profile, plan, and goals of each organization represented, facilitating organic connections among attendees.

COLLABORATE.

Attendees will report out their successes, challenges, and custom plans for others to see and follow their progress. In turn, they will also choose other organizations and colleagues to follow as they pursue their own paradigm shift. As a result, each organization is both leader and follower in a unique cohort model that generates accountability and momentum.

TAKE ACTION.

After several rounds of planning, calibrating, and collaborating, teams and individuals will regroup to begin the actual implementation of their plans. This dedicated, laser-focused phase will jumpstart the plan and ensure that no time is lost in moving forward with all objectives.
