Coordinated Education + Training

Workgroup Overview

The Coordinated Education and Training workgroup aims to spark action to address barriers to education and training in St. Petersburg. In 2019, this workgroup selected disconnected youth as a primary area of concern. Conversations focused on finding and reaching this population, as well as helping existing organizations in South Pinellas who provide education and training align their efforts in reaching disconnected youth. This work and focus will continue in 2020. 

  • Identify and distribute resources for disconnected youth 
  • Host at least one networking event to help connect with groups/organizations/community members who can’t attend workgroup meetings.
