At a GlanceBy 2031, good jobs that are accessible to those with only a high school education will represent just 5% of all jobs, while 70% of jobs will require postsecondary education. Yet fewer than half of all young people in the United States have the postsecondary education needed to succeed in our economy, and we are confronting significant inequities in educational outcomes. Community colleges are critical partners in our efforts to transform our education systems to better support young people.
Join JFF's Pathways to Prosperity team for an online panel discussion with community college leaders about how we might advance postsecondary leadership in building pathways that connect high school, college, and careers, a priority we've named for our pathways work.
Featured speakers include:
Cedric Bradley, Vice President, Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College
Mordecai Brownlee, President, Community College of Aurora
Jack Daniels, President, Madison Area Technical College
Yoshiko Harden, President, Renton Technical College
Postsecondary institutions have a much bigger role to play in building pathways that connect and blur the lines between high school, college, and good jobs. Tune in to learn more about postsecondary leaders’ efforts to build effective pathways systems, make connections among stakeholders, and support strong labor market outcomes for all.
