The fast pace of technology greatly impacts workforce development and labor market trends. Today the fast pace of technology, in conjunction with the many workplace pivots precipitated by the COVID-19 pandemic, leaves parents and students with many questions about careers and how to prepare for them.
Hosted by Hannah Horne, Vice President of Public Policy and Programs at Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce, this episode will explore opportunities for students preparing to enter the workforce directly after high school. The episode will feature student guests who share their experiences identifying nontraditional career pathways and training opportunities.

SOLKit: Guideposts for Black girlhood Celebration
March 28 at 5 p.m.
In February 2020, SCETV partnered with SOLHOT (Saving Our Lives Hear Our Truths) for Black Girl Genius Week 2020. Black Girl Genius Week is a public campaign that celebrates the creative potential of and cultivates affirmative space for Black girls to be and become. While at SCETV, SOLHOT homegirls created community with Black girls from Longleaf Middle and Dent Middle schools using dance circles, spoken word, music-making and art activities that center Black girl ways of knowing and being.
We had an opportunity to interview students and SOLHOT homegirls, including foundational Black Girlhood Studies scholar Ruth Nicole Brown and Nikky Finney. In this program, we present their guideposts for liberatory praxis.
