Next Gen Leaders

Career-Connected Learning

To better meet student needs, we are evolving our program to leverage the mentoring relationship in a way that explicitly supports career pathway development. We will 1) equip mentors to support student career readiness skill building and pursuit of careers and employment; 2) increase student understanding and awareness of careers and high growth jobs; and 3) prepare students to be more competitive for the job market.
