The Navigating Our Way film kicks off a new leading national initiative - of the same name—committed to shifting how society values career and technical education (CTE) and the skilled trades. The time is NOW to help all students follow their interest and pursue their passions. We are excited to share and connect with others who want to change the narrative—including educational leaders, policymakers, researchers, and industry stakeholders.
The first film in the series, Navigating Our Way is narrated by award-winning film and television actor and New Orleanian Wendell Pierce. The story features two childhood friends’ very different learning journeys; Seymour leaving for college, and Sylvie staying home in New Orleans where her passions lie—in the shipyards and with the trades. They're ultimately reunited to find that their individual successes lead to a beautiful partnership.
Navigating Our Way was written by Elliot Washor (Big Picture Learning) and Paul Reynolds (FableVision)—with character design by New York Times best-selling picture book author Peter H. Reynolds. The film’s original music score was composed by New Orleans native Brian Richburg, Jr. in collaboration with composer Tony Lechner.
