Staff from the Youth & Community Engagement (YCE) team and Data Innovation Project (DIP) kicked off a virtual, 3-part training series to introduce the foundational components of the Gateway to Opportunity (G2O) program to partners from around the state. The first training session held on September 28 covered an introduction to work-based learning and how it advances equity, and an overview of the G2O model.
G2O connects high-school-aged young people (typically 16- to 19-years-old who are both in school and out of school) with paid, work-based learning projects where they hone and develop 21st Century Skills.
Training attendees interacted with each other through Jamboards and breakout groups. The next two virtual sessions will be held on October 19 and November 2.
