TH85: Building Trades into Education: Bridging the Skills Gap Through Collaboration

In this session, you will hear from veteran wood educators who represent three of the districts in the Southwest Colorado Education Collaborative (SWCEC). They have developed a collaborative approach to bridging the skills gap through project-based learning, networking, and instilling 21st-century skills in high school students across Southwest Colorado. They will share how their partnership has led to innovative projects, improved student outcomes, and increased visibility for their programs. They will share project plans and resources they have developed and provide tips on how to partner with other programs in your area.
