Apprenticeships – 18-25 year olds
How can we make apprenticeships in IT, health care, project management, business services – not just construction – something that youth would want to sign up for?
This will be a 1 hour session that will be led by other young people like yourselves.
We are looking for young people 18-25 that have a HS diploma but haven’t finished college and looking for a good opportunity.
Transportation Information Group
Transportation – 16-25 year olds
The future of transportation will be driven (literally) by technology. We might not have flying cars soon, but we can count on self-driving cars, small vans connecting between neighborhoods, and phone apps connecting everything. We might even see subscriptions like we have for TV and internet instead of everyone owning their own car.
Will all this technology actually help you get around the city? To work or school? To see friends and family?
Will it be expensive? Accessible? Easy to use? Welcoming?
We don’t have all the answers – we’d like to hear from you about your thoughts on the future of technology and transportation.
