To meet the current and future workforce needs of senior living communities, our industry must recruit 1.4 million new professionals into our ranks. One way to accelerate this process is through K-12 school partnerships and getting involved with community colleges and universities to help them develop their elder care, gerontology, and senior living management programs. How do you know you have succeeded? Students will tell you. This session will celebrate successful educational programs and partnerships, and provide you with insights from your future workforce on how to position our industry as a career destination.
