The Entrepreneurial Mind: Teaching Kids to Think Differently

A Roadmap for Growth Issue Forum

With only 55 percent of Philadelphia public school students going on to college from high school, we must find other ways to ensure young people have the skills needed to thrive in the modern economy. Entrepreneurship can act as a springboard for many of our city's residents — employing, educating, and preparing our citizens for high-quality and high-wage 21st-century jobs.

At this Roadmap for Growth issue forum, participate in an honest dialogue about how we can overcome our city's staggering unemployment rate by mobilizing schools and incentivizing businesses to train the next generation of our workforce.
