GradNation Community Summit
United Way of Wyoming Valley believes that education is one of the most influential factors in determining a child’s success. In partnership with America’s Promise Alliance and several local organizations, we are convening a GradNation Community Summit in Wyoming Valley to explore innovative approaches to support young people in and out-of-school.
We invite you to participate in an education summit focused on improving graduation rates in Wyoming Valley. The summit will feature a keynote address from Dr. Leonard Sax, a family physician, board-certified in family medicine, currently in practice in suburban Philadelphia, who also holds a PhD in psychology. Dr. Sax is a successful author of four books on child and adolescent development. Breakout sessions will include panel discussions on the following topics:
•Early Childhood Education •Family Engagement •Early Warning Systems •Career Readiness
Sessions will be led by subject matter experts representing local and statewide organizations. Hundreds of dedicated individuals, educators, business leaders, and community organizations will come together to examine local data, identify best practices, and address challenges in Wyoming Valley’s efforts to improve high school graduation rates and better prepare young people for success.
As a champion for students, we hope you are able to attend to share your perspective and gain insight on how Wyoming Valley can better support students through high school graduation and beyond.
