Future Ready Alliance


To help our region’s youth succeed and ensure southwestern Pennsylvania employers can find the talent they’ll need, the Consortium organized the Future Ready Alliance.

During the 2020-2021 school year, Alliance programming will focus on social and emotional learning. Additionally, we’ll be offering resources on equity, online learning engagement strategies, future readiness and other areas in which districts have needs.

At least through the fall,  we anticipate that all programming will be virtual .

Throughout the school year, Alliance participants work  to  strengthen school and district resources for helping their students explore post-secondary education and careers.

Stakeholders are in agreement that some of the most important transferrable skills students need for success aren’t formally taught. Through the Alliance, schools develop strategies, opportunities and experiences not just to help kids learn about careers, but also to develop the transferrable, soft skills essential to future success.
