Kidsburgh on KDKA: How your child can build career skills during the Career Ready PA Backpack Challenge

Now through May 23, the Pittsburgh area  is home to more than 200 hands-on learning events for kids and their families during Remake Learning Days. Among this group of arts, maker, outdoor learning, science, technology and youth voice events, more than 150 carry a special label: They are Career Ready events. As part of the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s Career Ready PA initiative, these Remake Learning Days events also qualify for the Backpack Challenge.

Students who attend these events will earn a Career Ready PA Backpack Challenge badge and will help their school earn a Career Ready PA banner. (Ask your child’s teacher if their school has signed up for the Career Ready PA Backpack Challenge. If they haven’t, they can sign up right here.)

This week, Kidsburgh Ambassador Yu-Ling Cheng visited KDKA’s afternoon news show Talk Pittsburgh to talk about career readiness and the Career Ready PA initiative. Watch the video right here:
