Post Secondary Enrollment

The post-secondary enrollment network of Learn4Life are looking at the issues and challenges students face in obtaining further training (4 year/ 2 year college, technical training, certification, etc.) to prepare them for the workforce. As with the recently completed 3rd-grade network, the network will review current data and research to understand the barriers students face and the existing strategies and initiatives that are demonstrating uncommon success. The goal is to identify a few key initiatives that business, philanthropy and our school districts can scale up to have a dramatic impact on successful post-secondary enrollment.

We believe this is a unique opportunity to sit down and discuss the barriers to post-secondary enrollment with our peers in school districts and key community partners along with business and philanthropy leaders.
