America is at a crossroads. According to research by the Brookings Institution, many of our young people are struggling to find work in our US labor force. Simultaneously, many open positions remain unoccupied as employers are unable to locate workers with the required skill set. Many of these unfilled jobs are in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) – the industries that propel innovation, competition and economic growth. What are we doing to address this skills gap and prepare our students to enter and excel in these competitive industries? Microsoft, in collaboration with the Brookings Institution, The City of Philadelphia and School of the Future, is exploring this urgent condition in an exclusive complimentary event series called Microsoft YouthSpark Connections. Join us as we examine the most current research on youth, education, and the opportunities to better meet the requirements of the labor market through education.
