Coke student challenge

Date Published: 
Thursday, October 4, 2018

The "Dear Future Community" campaign sponsored by Coca-Cola, challenges students to consider how they would address community concerns.

An October 3 pop-up event introduced UNC Charlotte students to the national program. While enjoying free Coke, students considered the following question:

There is a lack of workforce for skilled and technical jobs in fields like transportation and business operations - and a  lack of awareness that these are good career options that allow people to support themselves and their families. What can we do together to help young Charlotteans get the training they need for these fields?
 
Although the pop-up event on our campus is over, you have through October 15 to participate. In 300 words or less, share your idea to renew and strengthen the Charlotte of tomorrow. If your submission is selected, Coke will provide the resources and mentorship to help bring your vision to life. Details: coke.com/dearfuturecommunity.
