The myFutureNC Commission wants to hear from you! RSVP below for the Kannapolis Listening Session!


myFutureNC is a new, statewide group with a focus on improving educational attainment and economic opportunities for all North Carolinians.

Our members—state leaders in education, business, philanthropy, and faith‐based and nonprofit communities—will be working all year to develop a plan for aligning our education systems and North Carolina’s future workforce needs.

We are traveling across the state this year to get input and ideas from North Carolinians.

We want to hear from all of you: educators, parents, students, service providers, faith leaders, businesspeople, government representatives, and other community members.

We will be in your area on Thursday, June 14th from 2 pm until 5:00 p.m. at Kannapolis City Hall, located at 401 Laureate Way, Kannapolis, NC 28081. NOTE: This is an updated location.

Please join us to share your thoughts and ideas about strengthening educational and economic opportunities for your community.
