Invites you to a briefing on

Area CTE Centers:

Building a Skilled Workforce through Local Partnerships

Thursday, April 4th, 2019

11am-12pm

Rayburn Building Room 2325 

Across the country, area career and technical education (CTE) centers provide cost-effective, co-located sites where CTE is delivered to secondary and postsecondary students as well as adult learners. These centers give individuals unique opportunities to connect with local businesses and learn the skills they need to access employment, helping industries develop a competitive workforce.

Nearly 50 percent of U.S. high schools are served by area CTE centers, yet many people have never heard of them or know about their impact on students, businesses, and communities. Please join the CTE caucus for a briefing on area CTE centers and hear from national and state leaders about the services they provide and how they benefit your constituents.

Kimberly Green, Executive Director, Advance CTE

Dr. Brenda Dann-Messier, RI Commissioner of Postsecondary Education

Amy Grzybowksi, Executive Director, Westerly Education Center

Todd Taylor, Vice President, Post-Secondary Education, Central Pennsylvania Institute of Science and Technology
