About This Event
Join SPARK Boston and GA for a Chief Chat with Boston’s first ever Chief of Education Rahn Dorsey, BPL President David Leonard, and New Urban Mechanics’ Civic Research Director Kim Lucas as we discuss the future of learning in Boston.
Why It Matters?
Boston has some of the most prestigious colleges and universities in the country (and there’s a few household names across the river, too). But our city is also home to many other educational opportunities that, for many Bostonians, are favorite hidden gems. Whether you’re new to the Hub or a born-and-bred Bostonian, there’s plenty to explore to advance your career, learn a new skill, pick up a second (or third!) language, and more.
With these resources and opportunities in mind, Mayor Walsh hired Boston’s first ever Chief of Education Rahn Dorsey and challenged him to connect these many pieces, supporting a lifelong learning environment for all residents.
What You Will Takeaway?
-Insight into the city’s vision for relevant, accessible lifelong learning
-A list of great (often free!) places for you to go get skills
-An interest for further exploring the city’s wide-ranging experiential learning opportunities
-New understanding of how Boston’s educational assets fit together
