OC PATHWAYS SHOWCASE

The OC Pathways Showcase is an annual celebration of the partnership between industry and educational leaders and their joint efforts to equip ​​the next generation and fortify the county’s future workforce. Since 2015, we’ve gathered each year to showcase and celebrate student projects as they travel through their education and career paths aided by forward thinking business partners and educational leaders. As educators partner with businesses, increasing work-based learning partnerships, students are responding in ways that exhibit their agile adaptiveness, desire to persevere, and commitment to lifelong learning and development.
