VPP Launches New Initiative: Ready for Work: Champions for Career and College Ready Graduates in Prince George's County
Ready for Work leverage’s Prince George’s County’s Career Academies—which engage high school students in a college preparatory academic curriculum and a career/technicalcurriculum that incorporates real world applications and project-based learning.
VPP clearly stands on a solid foundation of achievement, but our work certainly does not – and must not – stop here. All of us know that the challenges our young people face are larger and more complex than ever. We’ve already started to write the next chapter in our success story through our Capital Kids Portfolio.
The initiative has already raised nearly $5 million—one third of the way to reaching the goal of $15 million.
