Close the Skills Gap, with Patty Alper
Patty Alper is author of “Teach to Work: How a Mentor, a Mentee, and a Project Can Close the Skills Gap in America.” Patty’s 35-year career as an entrepreneur and business executive, coupled with two decades of hands-on experience working with youth, helps her understand the growing skills gap from both perspectives: the employers who seek to build a pipeline and hire better prepared youth for 21st century jobs, and the youth who are often ill equipped or ill trained to enter the new workforce. Patty bridges the business and academic sectors uniquely with a proven mentorship formula, told through best practices, case studies, and heartwarming true tales of youth.
