On October 29, educators, business leaders and others came together for a virtual discussion to launch the Generation Success initiative.
Now more than ever, all of us in Greater Boston must put our collective energy behind young people. High school students need businesses, post-secondary institutions and nonprofits to join with educators and parents in order to prepare students for college, career and life.
At the event, industry leaders and educators shared how they are working together, and we announced the Generation Success Challenge, a change for groups and organizations to work together to earn a share of $30,000 in support.
Boston Opportunity Agenda Executive Director Kristin McSwain moderated the discussion.
