Career & Education Development

In our rapidly changing world, career development is a life long journey.

To meet the needs of all youth, we all need to examine educational practices and strategies, understanding the need to prepare K-12 students to directly experience and explore a variety of career roles within their communities, to develop understandings of their individual capabilities, interests, and aptitudes, and to engage in developmentally appropriate challenges that build interpersonal skills, active problem-solving, and confidence in their ability to use what they know and are learning to figure things out.

Extended Learning Opportunities inside the walls of school and beyond are one way of intentionally providing students direct experience to explore career roles within their community. For a direct link to educators who create and coordinate extended learning opportunities for students in their schools visit the Community Coordinators Collaborative website.
