We are excited to announce the Institute for Education’s newest program, “Future Frontiers“! Future Frontiers aims to bridge the gap in high school students’ understanding of future career paths by assembling diverse speakers. Aligned with the IFE mission to partner with various leaders and foster a culture of bipartisanship and civic engagement, Future Frontiers seeks to empower students by offering firsthand insights into various career and life paths. This program strives to equip students with the knowledge and inspiration to navigate their futures confidently.
