Wilson’s Career Readiness Consultancy (WCRC) is a public policy and project -based consultancy that focuses on a Public – Private Partnership approach in promoting STEAM-based career and entrepreneurship initiatives. These projects primarily target initiatives that will prepare underrepresented youth and young adults to contribute to the economic and cultural well-being of their communities. Such work includes exploring state-wide programming which will expand these initiatives in K-12 institutions, so that students can make profitable decisions when they enter the workforce.
Policy leaders are recognizing the importance of encouraging employers to participate in curriculum development and career-based courses in K-12 school districts. Additionally, policy leaders want to develop a pathway which will allow students to further their education and credentials. In several districts, technical and traditional high schools are expanding work experience and access to college courses; especially in the STEAM field.
WCRC is currently conducting research on employer perception in working with High School students and K-12 districts. Through survey research, our goal is to develop programming regarding building relevant partnerships; especially in predominantly low income, minority districts.
If any professionals in the STEAM industry are interested in participating, please download the survey below this message and email it to email@example.com upon completion.
