Help students and families understand options.

As students approach the end of high school, they can take a number of paths – joining the workforce, enlisting in the military, going to college or technical school. They may want to play college athletics or work during school. Prepare your educators to advise any student on these potential futures with our trainings and tools.

Explore careers.

Your students are already tailoring their high school classes toward their goals, but there are still so many careers they’ve never even heard of. Provide your educators training in how to organize work-based learning experiences such as internships, how to use labor market information to broaden their horizons, and how to find career planning tools to help students explore on their own.
