A diverse group of students, parents, community leaders and educators are coming to CSULB to discuss “Youth Educational Options: Pathways to Your Future” during the fifth annual Community Issues Forum on April 18 from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. at the University Student Union.
The forum, which is recognized locally as a valuable, dynamic resource that strengthens community ties, shapes informed policy and promotes continued dialogue, is free and open to the public. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
This year’s event is designed to serve as a unique opportunity to discuss students' educational experiences, provide a better understanding of college and career options available after high school and take steps to ensure more students are able to continue their education or begin a successful career. A stimulating day of engagement, advocacy and partnership building, the forum will begin with an interactive panel of students, parents and experts discussing necessary steps to ensure a successful future for today's youth and will conclude with an opportunity to develop a group action plan to help students follow the pathway to success. Representatives from the Long Beach Unified School District, Long Beach City College and CSULB are among those who will attend the event.
