The Finger Lakes Advanced Manufacturers’ Enterprise is pleased to present our 2019 annual event Keynote, Mr. Brent Parton from the Center on Education & Skills with the Education Policy program at New America! The Center is dedicated to building learning-based pathways to economic opportunity that can begin inside or outside of formal higher education. His work focuses on federal and state policies to scale those pathways, and ensure their quality and relevance within an evolving economy.
Parton is leading New America’s Partnership to Advance Youth Apprenticeship (PAYA). PAYA is a multi-year initiative that will support efforts in states and cities to expand access to high-quality apprenticeship opportunities for high school age youth by:
  • Improving public awareness of high-quality youth apprenticeship programs and advancing understanding of how well such programs serve students, employers, and communities.
  • Disseminating better information about the conditions and strategies necessary for success and sustainability of youth apprenticeship partnerships.
  • Supporting more high-quality, scalable youth apprenticeship partnerships that better serve participating employers, students, and communities.
