Today's skills-based and technical education is cutting-edge, rigorous, and simply excellent at perparing youth and adults for high skill, high paying jobs.  There are thousands of open jobs in dozens of career clusters, like IT, cybersecurity, hospitality, life sciences, public safety, tourism, and healthcare.  The need is great and opportunity abounds!  How has Northern Virginia caught the wave and grown the skills-based and craftsmanship ranks of our workforce, and what role can philanthropy play in encouraging and mentoring the "skill maestros" of tomorrow?

Registration is $35 and includes a continental breakfast.
