Find Your Grind on Capitol Hill

Representatives from Find Your Grind traveled to Washington DC to showcase our innovative product and engage in discussions about education policy.

On July 11th, Find Your Grind was one of fifteen innovative learning solutions invited to Capitol Hill to provide thought leadership and live product demonstration to members of the United States Congress. 

The National Coalition for Technology in Education & Training (NCTET) and the Title IV-A Coalition invited Find Your Grind to this impactful event because of our unique approach to preparing young people for the future of work. The afternoon focused on showcasing cutting-edge education technology products and services that ensure our nation’s K-12 students receive a modern, top-flight education. In addition, senators and representatives had the chance to see first-hand the importance of vital federal funding programs, such as Title IV-A, that support school districts’ acquisitions of these EdTech tools and services. 

Senators and representatives in attendance were able to conduct a hands-on exploration of Find Your Grind, understand our academic and pedagogical value, and learn more about how our product successfully makes its way into classrooms around the country.

This event provided a remarkable opportunity for Find Your Grind to engage in federal education policy discussions, learn about crucial policy issues, and share ideas for collaboration with senators and representatives on Capitol Hill. It was great meeting and connecting with exceptional leaders who are driving innovation in the education community.

Key Takeaways:

  • Policymakers are not always aware of the positive impact technology plays in education.
  • The American Association of School Administrators is leading conversations nationally about reimagining what College and Career Readiness means and discovered Find Your Grind is already making headway on changing the discussion in the classroom for students from career first to lifestyle first!
  • Find Your Grind had the opportunity to meet with the Senate HELP (Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions) committee. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Mental Health are the most pressing education issues the Senate HELP Committee seeks to support. Committee members were thrilled to see Find Your Grind includes learning content centered around both topics, from addressing AI and its impact on the future of work to over 5 hours of learning activities to help students’ mental wellness.
  • Senator Ed Mackey from Massachusetts shared his vision for equal access to the internet as a foundation for education technology’s impact nationally. He communicated to the audience the importance of embracing technology in the classroom and using it as a tool to inspire, engage, and motivate learners toward academic excellence.
