The annual College Changes Everything Conference is now live. This year, the conference will be held over a two-week period with live events and pre-recorded webinars. To register for the conference and live events, go to this registration page.
This annual conference is an opportunity for individuals to share how their college or higher education experience has made a lasting and positive impact in their lives. The conference will provide presentations about resources that are available to increase educational access and college completion for students in Illinois. Illinois hopes to increase the number of adults in the state with higher education degrees to 60% by 2025. The College Changes Everything Conference is an important opportunity to help the state reach this number.
This year, Illinois workNet submitted a recording of a presentation on the Employment 101 tool. Employment 101 is a self-guided tool that helps job seekers determine and set their career goals.
Other topics that will be discussed at College Changes Everything include:
- Navigating College and Career Pathways as a Postsecondary Student During COVID-19,
- Skills & Tools to Support Postsecondary Planning,
- Engaging and Supporting Youth in Work-Based Learning, and
- Much more
