Florida After School will use this PLC to provide tailored resources, training and technical assistance to help programs in their efforts to build workforce ready skills in students today needed for the jobs of tomorrow. Selected entities will be participate in a series of virtual peer learning calls  and to share data collected from program participants. In addition, each program will receive a small stipend to test curricula and assessment tools. This project is part of a national movement working to inspire and empower our future workforce.  

Congratulations to the agencies selected. We cannot wait to see these YE programs expand and thrive!
