While it's not possible for inner city youth to study abroad in the fictional world of Wakanda, they can learn about cool jobs and careers that exist in their own community. ACF Enterprises is partnering with Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) and local organizations to bring the BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE GREEN JOBS AND CAREER EXPO to urban centers.
Exposing inner city youth to a wider array of cool jobs and careers, as well as positive role models, is the mission of the BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE EXPO. Research has determined the link between schools and careers is largely absent for a vast majority of students living in low-income households. The Expo is a culturally-connected event that motivates students to aspire to create neighborhoods dotted with green roofs and energy-efficient trains that zip along elevated tracks.
There's no escaping the power of innovation in Disney-Marvel's blockbuster hit movie, Black Panther. Wakanda is a fictional nation in Africa that is so technologically advanced it is self sufficient. The BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE GREEN JOBS AND CAREER EXPO provides a strategic pathway for middle school and high school students to learn what it take to maintain Wakanda. Urban students can familiarize themselves with various professions, jobs and careers; network with successful African-Americans; meet potential employers, and connect with colleges and technical schools.
The program provides lesson plans for teachers and activities to engage students in exploring different industry options and career paths prior to attending the Expo.
