FWISD to expand cradle-to-career Vital Link program this fall

The FWISD Office of Innovation is undergoing a series of cradle-to-career initiatives to redesign, transform and revitalize local schools.

One of those initiatives is the refreshed and expanded Vital Link – Connecting Students to Careers. Vital Link is a unique business and education partnership program designed to give students and their teachers the opportunity to gain real-world work experience and apply the skills learned at school to the workplace.

The recent merger of the FWISD and TCC advisory boards will increase collaboration between educators and industry as Fort Worth prepares for a new kind of workforce in a post-COVID 19 environment.

The Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce, the Fort Worth Metropolitan Black Chamber of Commerce and the Fort Worth Hispanic Chamber of Commerce view collaboration by employers with the school district as a best practice for talent development, attraction and retention. Other community partners include the City of Fort Worth, Tarrant County College, Workforce Solutions for Tarrant County, Texas Wesleyan University and others.

Contact the Office of Innovation to learn more about Vital Link and how to impact the future workforce by supporting this educational initiative.
