On Tuesday, March 12, 2019, Skyline College’s Education and Child Development Program hosted its Spring 2019 “Career’s With Children” event. This event was being offered once a year in the evenings during the Fall semester and had such a great turn out that we decided to do it once a semester instead.
Over 72 students attended and spoke with employers from South City School District, Community Gate Path, Child Care Careers, Happy Hall Preschool, Bright Horizons and 10 other programs. Students also spoke with representatives from SFSU’s Education Path Program and USF’s School of Education.
This event came about due to the increasing shortage of qualified staff to work with children in the Bay Area. If you missed this event and would like information on becoming a teacher or working with children, youth or families, contact EDU/CD Program Services Coordinator Kristina Browner at firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by the EPICenter in Building 8, Room 8-317 and her office next door.
