WAGET is seeking pilot project sponsors to test whether sports from backyard to pro can be a hook to prepare youths for careers and life. We are soliciting schools, businesses, clubs, teams, communities, and households to learn how sports can be a hook to motivate, educate and reward youths.
The pandemic heightened the need for innovation in education, workforce development and community building. Digital credentialing is gaining traction nationally. The Wisconsin pilot projects may involve sports participants, fans or just bystanders and can be tailored to meet the needs of virtually any career.
Customized digital badges are tailored to meet individual needs of students and employers. Sportsified ™ digital credentialing content, activities, experiences, and events are focused on careers and community. In Milwaukee, Boldt Construction is sponsoring pilot projects aimed at attracting workers to the construction trades.
