Session 1
  • Creating a Career-Minded School Community...Be the Catalyst
    Inspire teachers, administrators, and school staff to be a part of promoting careers in your school! Preparing students for the world of work requires a multifaceted approach. In addition to exposure to careers, students need to develop skillsets that will give them the tools to be career-competitive in national and global markets. Creating a school community that embraces student career development on a daily basis as part of school culture uniquely prepares students for post-high school career opportunities. This session offers discussion, strategies, activities, resources, and idea-sharing for creating a career-minded school community. K-12 focused.

  • High School...We're Back and Brand New!

Learn how to access tools that support multiple paths toward college and career readiness including opportunities for internships, externships, and credentialing. 9-12 focused.

Session 2
  • Building on Strengths and Values: Career Intervention Strategies for Culturally Sensitive Career Education Programs Discover research-based models for developing career education programs for diverse communities. Career education programming can be enhanced by becoming more culturally informed. Participants will discover and discuss ways to create an intentional and sensitive approach to career education based on local diversity including, but not limited to: Rural Appalachia, ESL families, first generation college students, and more. K-12 focused.

  • Career Development Strategies for Students Living in Poverty
    Children living in poverty often remain within their own neighborhoods, and their exposure to careers may be limited. Presenting career exploration in a way that allows children to make sense of abstract concepts is crucial to their motivation and goal setting. This session will touch on the impacts of generational poverty, and strategies to approach career development recognizing these students' unique circumstances and needs. Resources provided! K-12 focused.
