GoGetter Chosen Among 24 Proposals for Local Visions for America's Future
We are proud to announce that GoGetter has been chosen to be one of 24 recipients across 17 states and the District of Columbia with $15,000 stipends for innovative ideas to transform education outcomes in the U.S.
Our commitment to educating our youth about opportunities in the skilled trades while cultivating a community around hard work and blue collar jobs, drives us to create a better product to serve our community, employees, and career enhancers.
We could not be more proud about the work that we are doing and the encouragement we receive from the business community has been exciting - to say the least.
It is our mission to be the ultimate resource for students, employees, and employers looking to pursue opportunities in the trades and we look forward to the announcement of the single finalist later this month.
"Pathway 2 Tomorrow: Local Visions for America’s Future (P2T) has awarded 24 recipients across 17 states and the District of Columbia with $15,000 stipends for innovative ideas to transform education outcomes in the U.S.
“Through P2T’s Call for Proposals, it is clear that individuals from across the country are committed to improving our education systems and seek to build upon the foundation to push existing boundaries and reach new ones,” said Hanna Skandera, former New Mexico secretary of education and P2T visionary. “We are confident that these game-changing ideas will impact students, schools and communities across the country. We’re thrilled to be working with these individuals to refine and expand on the proposed solutions and report on their impact.”
The goal of the Call for Proposals was to hear locally responsive ideas with the potential to transform our education system at the state and local levels. These proposals rose to the top through a rigorous review process. Over 2 months, P2T received 240 submissions across 39 states representing all geographical regions. Proposals came from policymakers, entrepreneurs, educators, parents, researchers, advocates, nonprofits and business leaders.
Submitted proposal topics ranged from closing the skills gap, teacher recruitment and preparation, personalized learning, higher education debt relief, and more.
The submitted proposals were reviewed by more than 30 cross-professional leaders. The selected proposals demonstrated established need, were research-informed, innovative, encompassed a clear path to implementation and anticipated significant results.
“We represent a group of people who are working every day on improving education for our nation’s students, and P2T has helped us uncover these locally responsive solutions,” stated the reviewers, who wrote an Open Letter following their review experience.
One of the 24 awarded proposals will receive the Innovation Award of $100,000. P2T will announce the recipient later this month."
