Career Literacy

Extraordinary career connected learning bridges the economy and education by focusing on the opportunity, belief, skills, and readiness gaps. 
Opportunity Gap

Globalization and technological innovation are having a vast impact on the evolving workforce. Often, education struggles to understand labor market needs and the emerging careers available to our students. Students are not aware of the breadth of career opportunities open to them. It’s important to instill good career literacy strategies and resources that lead to the ability for students to flourish.
