Northern Colorado Career-Connected Learning Asset Mapping & Facilitation Support Project
With support of Northern Colorado Prospers, the Fort Collins Area Chamber and the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado have convened the Northern Colorado Career-Connected Learning Asset Mapping & Facilitation Support Project.
This exciting new initiative will map our region’s educational programs, facilities, and opportunities for work-based learning to create a pipeline for local employers. We have selected Colorado Succeeds to facilitate conversations with you, school district superintendents, college, and university leaders to create an Asset Map, Landscape Analysis, and Recommendations for regional workforce development strategies.
Overview of the Project
The Community Foundation of Northern Colorado and the Fort Collins Area Chamber of Commerce are interested in supporting the region and its young people in achieving post-secondary success through partnership and opportunities offered by schools and partners. The exponential growth of these opportunities and interested partners has highlighted the need for more coordination as well as shared understanding of programming assets and gaps.
Through an asset mapping project, the partners seek to define these programs and organize them into an understandable, shareable tool. Facilitated conversations with our education leaders and a landscape analysis will be conducted by Colorado Succeeds, resulting in recommendations and alignment around strategic regional opportunities. The asset map and definitions will be external facing. The landscape analysis and recommendations will be presented to the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado and Fort Collins Chamber. These tools and conversations should also lead to actionable recommendations for student impact in SY 2023-24.
