An Apprenticeship Renaissance – the Swiss Model and How it could help the United States for the next 100 years of our economic growth

7:00 PM – 8:30 PM
Redmond

Description

Since the dawn of or democracy, the American dream has been about opportunity and the fact that anyone from anywhere in society can work hard and achieve success.

But in the United States, since WWII, the paths to that dream have narrowed to a single route and formula that requires a university degree (and a house and car) - a path that is getting more and more expensive and doesn't necessarily equip our nation with all of the skills we need for the future.

Ambassador Suzan (Suzi) LeVine, former U.S. Ambassador to Switzerland and Liechtenstein, and her husband Eric LeVine, founder and CEO of CellarTracker.com will share with you their insights into the Swiss Model of apprenticeship and how it can be useful in better preparing the citizenry of the united States for lifelong career readiness.
