Podcast: Reconnecting Youth to Education

Posted by Strada Education Network on September 14, 2021

Strada Director of Research Nichole Torpey-Saboe is the featured guest on the latest episode of “Talent Talks,” a podcast where human resources veteran Rick Maher talks with thought leaders about ways to re-invent U.S. talent development and education systems.

As part of a podcast series about the nation’s recovery from COVID-19, Torpey-Saboe discussed the special challenges faced by American youth as they consider reconnecting to education and getting back on track toward a career. Torpey-Saboe shared insights from Strada Public Viewpoint research, including a recent report that featured insights from members of the high school classes of 2020 and 2021. In the research, grads who had intended to enroll in education after high school but postponed their plans identified guidance, affordability, and stronger connection to careers as the most helpful solutions as they consider re-enrolling.
