To thrive in a rapidly changing world, young people need a dynamic competitive advantage in their education and career journey. Unify and empower your organization and stakeholders to deliver this advantage at the 2022 Education with Purpose: Call to Action. It’s time to shift the paradigm in education, workforce, and economic development—and make students career ready, period.
At the national Call to Action livestream event, your organization and stakeholders will experience a clarion call to rethink education, workforce, and economic development.
International speaker, bestselling author, and performance expert Mark C. Perna will introduce the explosive concept of Education with Purpose & Employment with Passion. Educators, employers, and communities everywhere are using this movement to:
Education and employment are in flux as they struggle to close the skills gap and equip the next generation—but there’s a way forward.
How they think, how they make decisions, and what makes them tick—Mark reveals how the much-maligned “Why Generation” is actually full of promise.
Without a compelling reason to learn, too many young people see education as their problem rather than their solution. Mark shares the secret of helping them find the career and lifestyle purpose to drive their highest performance.
Closing the skills gap means first closing the awareness gap, so young people can pursue the many in-demand career paths emerging today.
To make students truly career ready, everyone—educators, employers, economic developers, community leaders, and parents—must break down the siloes and start walking in lockstep toward the goal.
After the Call to Action, what’s the next step? Every registrant will receive a highly practical Action Guide to kickstart the dialogue needed to shift the paradigm in their community.
Join us as we call communities across North America to take decisive action. Now is the time to shift the paradigm in education, workforce, and economic development.
The skills gap—between the abilities employers are looking for and what the workforce can actually deliver—is growing. This gap will only be bridged at the local level, as communities come together to adapt and scale K14 and university career pathways to meet workforce demand and create viable initiatives for economic development.
We believe that Education with Purpose leads to Employment with Passion. Our changing world has created many new and unconventional pathways to success, making the “college for all” narrative obsolete. When all careers and levels of education are on the table as viable, rewarding, and celebrated pathways, students can become career ready, period.
To give young people options beyond college readiness alone, every stakeholder and decision-maker in your community must share the mission. The Call to Action will bring everyone into the fold of purpose-driven education—creating the vital buy-in to make this vision a reality.

Today is the single greatest opportunity in history to change the way people think about education and how it connects to the bigger picture. The critical areas of student success, education outcomes, workforce development, and the expanding skills gap are deeply interrelated, but often operate in isolation. This must change if the next generation is to explore all postsecondary pathways that lead to viable, living-wage careers. At its heart, this is the mission of Education with Purpose & Employment with Passion.
A wide range of organizations across five time zones and two countries have already taken part in this movement to shift the paradigm. Their excitement to start making a bigger impact in their communities is catching on, as stakeholders discover the power of Education with Purpose & Employment with Passion. Space is limited, so don’t delay.
