SuccessBound 2.0 gathering addresses regional workforce needs

1/22/2019

In 2017 Ohio launched SuccessBound, an educational strategy that brings together Ohio’s strong business and education partners to engage and inspire each student to be prepared for his or her post-high school paths. These paths could include an additional learning experience, serving in the military, earning a living wage, or engaged in a meaningful, sustaining vocation. SuccessBound encourages business and education leaders to connect all students to experiences such as career exploration activities, work-based learning, and in-demand education pathways.

In December, the Ohio Department of Education hosted a statewide SuccessBound gathering, SuccessBound 2.0, partnering with regional education and business leaders. Check out highlights from SuccessBound 2.0 in this video.
