An interactive conference for individuals with disabilities, grades 10-post graduate, focusing on preparing for the transition to college. Includes workshops that address the process of choosing a college and a major, how to apply and get accepted to college, how to afford college, and how to obtain support and maintain academic success.
Would you like to learn about how well our students are prepared to enter Pre-k or Kindergarten? Would you like to help support students and improve Pre-K and Kindergarten Readiness? You are cordially invited to attend our early education forum to collaborate on this important topic and determine next steps in Pre-K and Kindergarten Readiness!
We will also have some great books to share for your centers or programs! Brunch, snacks, and beverages will be served.
We will be limiting registration to 40 participants due to the venue space. However, we may be able to accommodate a few extra participants. If you are interested in attending and registration is closed due to max registration limit, please email Brittany Trybendis and we can determine if we can accommodate additional participants at that time. We are hoping to engage participants currently practicing within early education.
Workforce Skills Gap Forum
August 1 at 6 PM
Every year, colleges and universities graduate thousands students looking to join the workforce. But are they prepared? With such an apparent abundance of available talent, why do many employers continue to complain about a "skills gap" and a lack of qualified candidates to fill positions?
Is the mission of higher education to prepare graduates with the skills they need (and that employers want) for the 21st century? Is there a disconnect between academia and the working world? Should our colleges adapt to train more work-ready graduates?
On August 1st, Mountain Lake PBS will bring together a panel of representatives from area colleges and businesses to tackle the question, "What do employers want?"

ATTEND: August 1 at 6 PM, Mountain Lake PBS, 1 Sesame St, Plattsburgh

The Career Connect Planning Team, Partners and Sponsors would like to invite you to participate in our second annual Career Connect Showcase being held on May 19, 2016 at the Angell College Center on the SUNY Plattsburgh campus. The goal of the Showcase is to connect students with area business or community organization partners in relevant fields around the 16 career clusters and provide them the opportunity to network with their peers by sharing Career Cluster Common Core aligned research projects.
We are very thankful to those who joined us last year, and I hope you will be able to share your expertise again this year. If you are new, welcome, and we would love for you to be a part of this day. We currently have 6 districts participating and 600+ students registered to attend.
Get Ready to Learn! is a free event to model activities and promote early childhood services and resources to get kids prepared for school. By bringing together all the resources available in Clinton County, we hope to make a real impact on awareness in our region.
