  • Minimum Education and Training Requirements vary widely by occupational groupSource: www.qualityinfo.org

  • In the labor market, its more appropriate to consider the competitive requirementsSource: www.qualityinfo.org

  • Two-thirds of high wage, high-demand jobs are projected to require a minimum of education/training beyond high schoolSource: www.qualityinfo.org

  • With competitive requirements for high wage, high demand jobs, 95% require some education beyond high schoolSource: www.qualityinfo.org

  • What can we do?

  • RecommendationsEncourage youth to experience the workforce through any avenuejobs, internships, training opportunities, volunteer opportunities, etc.

    Reinforce the idea that youth will need education or training beyond high school in order to be competitive

    Talk about it - Share this information with business leaders, community members, elected officials, etc. in order to develop creative solutions
