We Lead helps local students examine career readiness

We Lead

Thanks to We Lead, Iowa Workforce Development and West Liberty High School, juniors were able to take ACT’s National Career Readiness Certificate exam. We Lead initiated the project to help students better understand the workforce skills they possess and help West Liberty determine a baseline to identify gaps in the local workforce’s skills.

“We Lead works in partnership with ISU Extension and Outreach to spur economic development in rural communities,” said Karen Lathrop, extension specialist and former We Lead director. “This project aligns with extension initiatives for economic development and K-12 outreach.”
