ALTERNATIVES TO COLLEGE: WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS?
Education has quickly evolved over the past 10 years. Traditional education isn’t teaching the skill sets that are in demand, leaving students without the right knowledge to get the jobs they want or the skills that they need to succeed. As a result, we’ve seen the rise of alternative education programs within the digital industry in Houston and all around the world.
Bootcamps, code schools, distance learning programs, online mentorship, and charity scholarships are some of the programs and incentives that have responded to this need.
But how do students and parents find and navigate these new opportunities? Join us for an informative panel discussion and collaborative Q&A on innovative and alternate paths to success
