Youths today are growing up in a time of rapid changes in our society. With technological advances and a more globalized economy shifting how businesses operate everyday, our young people must be just as agile and be prepared to work in the jobs of tomorrow.
We are already concerned about skills shortage and its impact on job growth in our nation, especially in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. In addition, more employers are seeking workers who demonstrate strong interpersonal skills to effectively interact and communicate with people from diverse backgrounds. Given this momentum, we have a prime opportunity to ensure our young people are developing the skills and competencies to effectively navigate their future careers.
