Think for a moment about your career and the decisions you made to get to where you are now. Does your current occupation match what you aspired to be when you were 7 years old? Did you have a mentor who encouraged you to explore an industry you knew nothing about? No matter how you landed into your profession, your knowledge and experience can translate into influence on the next generation through this updated digital platform.
This platform, called access2experience (a2e), aims to facilitate connections between professionals and educators to reinforce curriculum with real world experience. This streamlined process, similar to other connection-making apps, is easy to use: you create a profile on the website and then educators, who also make a profile, can reach out and connect with you.
This unique platform gives professionals the opportunity to inspire the next generation and gives educators the opportunity to see their students thrive. By giving your expertise, you could inspire a student to start on a pathway toward a career they had never considered before. By sharing why you are passionate about what you do, you could drive a youth to find what they are passionate about. We need a trained and talented workforce in the Spokane area and you can help make that happen—while also helping the next generation succeed.
Skill and wisdom meet young minds looking for motivation and direction in a2e.
