Workforce development can learn a lot from the sports industry. Youth sports participation is a foundation of childhood for many Americans—parents encourage it, kids enjoy it, and schools support it. And though few youth athletes go pro, this early introduction to the field benefits professional sports teams with highly trained athletes and large, loyal consumer bases.
