OCPS Teach-In provides unique opportunity for area business leaders

comments | Read Comments


Here in Orange County, workforce development is an increasingly important topic. The economy is thriving and businesses continue to flock to the Orlando area, but are we as a community doing enough to provide qualified employees to fill these jobs?
 
Many students are not aware of the nearly limitless possibilities available to them. While it is often assumed that a four-year college degree is the only path to a successful career, there are many tracks students can take. College certainly provides a wealth of opportunities. Right here in our area, UCF and Valencia College are providing opportunity to thousands of students each year. Alternatively, many students are finding success through technical programs, like those offered at Orange Technical College, where they are learning valuable skills that put them on a fast track to a great job.
 
On November 15, business leaders have the opportunity to reach students directly via the annual OCPS Teach-In program. Participants can take advantage of this unique opportunity to become a teacher for the hour, showcasing some of the qualities they are looking for in their next great employee, while inspiring students and getting them to start thinking about their next steps after school. Learn more about this valuable program at www.foundationforocps.org.
