Welcome to the Engage.Connect Webcast Series!


Through our travels, consulting and participating in various education conferences, we’ve met some wonderful people who are doing some amazing work.  We decided to start a webcast series highlighting important innovations in education relating to the pathways movement. Hearing what others are doing around the country can help us gain important insights and real-life examples that we can use in our own state and local work; and just as important, it can also motivate us to continue our efforts to make the biggest possible difference for our youth and young adults that we serve.

To ease the burden of a busy schedule, you can view/listen to these webcasts anytime day or night!
