STORY OF THE MONTH: 
Investing in Our Students at Madrona Venture Group


"My favorite part of the worksite tour has been getting to know the people, and hearing about how they've come a long way to be where they are right now," said Habiba, a Lindbergh High School student. 

When Lindbergh students visited Madrona Venture Group, employees organized a competition based on the TV series "Shark Tank." In teams, the students developed ideas for apps and then pitched them to a panel of judges. Read the story to see how local professionals inspired students to transform their passions into possibilities. 
COLLEGE KNOWLEDGE TRANSLATIONS

College Knowledge  materials are now available in the top five languages spoken at home by students in Washington state: English, Russian, Somali, Spanish and Vietnamese. Community members reviewed the translations to make sure the language was appropriate and accessible.

How many students in our region want to go to college vs. how many students are actually going? How are young leaders inspiring change in our schools? How are youth who have been disconnected from school receiving support to get reengaged? Check out the Road Map Project 2017 Results Report for data and stories on all of these college and career readiness issues in our region! (And check out pages 30-31 for the feature on DiscoverU!)
