We know businesses want to connect with schools, schools want to learn what businesses need, and students want and need to see career opportunities first-hand. Path to Careers helps connections happen — effectively and efficiently. Path to Careers allows businesses to easily register with information highlighting who they are, what they do and how they'd like to connect with schools and students by providing career awareness experiences. Schools register so educators and students alike can easily learn about local businesses and then connect with them in ways that allow them to see, feel, and understand first-hand the opportunities that exist and the skills and abilities it takes to secure them. Path to Careers helps schools focus on what matters — students — while relieving the burden of trying to research where the businesses are, what they have to offer, and who to contact. Similarly, it is designed with businesses in mind, allowing connections to happen within a streamlined process that works for them.
Whether you're a student figuring out what's next after high school, a business looking to find the next generation of leadership, or an educator striving to make sure students are more than adequately prepared for the rest of their lives, we believe connection is at the core of it all. We are helping to make those connections happen- effectively and intentionally.
Uncertainty about life after high school, how to keep curriculum on the cutting edge, and how to plan for business growth are daunting. We aim to bring clarity—by helping students see the relevance of school work, figure out what interests them, what they're good at, and where they'd fit well, everyone benefits.
We aim to instill confidence in the choices young people make and the careers they choose. By providing career experiences, students will see the connection between school, career readiness and a bright future. We believe that with confidence in who they are, the abilities they possess, and an awareness of the opportunities available, young adults can reach their full potential and make a positive impact.
