Evolution of the Ford PAS Curriculum

Mon, 01/03/2011

"We wanted to ensure the investment we were making was going to really make a difference, so we teamed with a group called Education Development Center..." This video describes how Ford Motor Company Fund and EDC developed the Ford PAS curriculum. Ford PAS engages students in learning academics through the business or career they're interested in, develops key career skills—critical thinking, problem-solving, communication—exposes students to careers they might not otherwise have access to, and connects students with the business community and post-secondary institutions.
