Life and Career Ready

Galaxy image of the back of a woman standing on a vista looking out at the mountains in the distance with her arms raised above her head and her thumbs up. Text in picture:  The journey to becoming a thriving adult begins in childhood, continues for an entire lifetime, and is built upon life skills that bring together social, emotional, and cognitive acts of acquiring knowledge and understanding through thought, experience, and the senses.

Career Development is not Isolated from Human Development 

  • Be confident while recognizing their own strengths and limitations with a well-grounded sense of purpose;
  • Have the capacity to delay gratification, manage stress, draw motivation from within, and approach life with a sense of agency to accomplish personal goals as well as collective goals shared with others;
  • Feel compassion for others, understand historical and social norms for behavior in different settings, and recognize family and community resources and supports.
  • Establish and maintain healthy relationships and effectively navigate settings with diverse individuals and groups; and
  • Anticipate and evaluate the consequences of one’s actions after analyzing information, data, and facts and with curiosity and an open mind, identify solutions for personal and social problems.
