“Marc Andreessen used to say that software is eating the world. Now, automation is going to eat the world.” – Mark Cuban.

Our labor market is increasingly reliant on technology, automation, innovation, and obtaining a postsecondary degree. So how should college and career advisors motivate and inspire their students? How can we prepare youth to be the next innovators? How can we work with low-income, first-generation youth – those who often encounter significant barriers to postsecondary access but have a deep desire to impact their world — and prepare them to be leaders in the labor market of tomorrow?

During this interactive webinar, learn about how Marcus Foster Education Initiative is employing advising strategies that are systems-focused and connect youth to resources, people/ideas and power. They are testing a new approach to college and career advising: W+P=X. Learn how this initiative links tech, youth empowerment, and systems change to fuel college and career success
