The studies are becoming clear, youth and student engagement is an important predictor of success. With this in mind, Carla works across all sectors, helping young people lean into outcomes that matter to them. Carla worked as a teacher on 3 different continents over the last 16 years. She has been involved in projects aimed at career pathways, educational transformation, curriculum development, online program creation, as well as shifts towards self-directed learning, project-based learning, service learning, and flipped classrooms.

Carla will work to help the audience understand changes within emerging generations and share how she has engaged over 10,500 students in the last 4 years to pursue leadership training.
