In October 2013, Schools That Can (STC) hosted its first e2e (Education to Employment) Symposium at West Point Military Academy. The Symposium united a unique cross-section of society to begin understanding and addressing the challenge of how to equip students with 21st century skills. As a result, STC created and facilitated a year of Study Groups who convened regularly to deepen insight into these challenges and begin to craft solutions. We’re now poised to build on the foundation we’ve laid, and take this experience to the next level of learning.

STC’s 2nd annual e2e Symposium provides a rare opportunity for diverse leaders from across the national STC community from urban education, industry, higher ed, and ed innovation, to foster valuable relationships and work together on our nation’s most urgent challenge.

Through a series of engaging and interactive sessions integrating a design-thinking process, attendees will move from a macro-level overview of the e2e problem that plagues our schools and society to a micro-level discussion about how to apply solutions in different contexts. We are eager to unite leaders from K-12 schools, institutes of higher education, industry, and education innovators in order to better understand and address the challenges inherent in helping young people – particular those raised in low-income communities – to develop 21st century skills and empower them to pursue pathways to prosperity.
