Career Connections offer practical ways for teachers, school counselors, families and community members to show students, as early as kindergarten, the types of careers possible for them. Career Connections are designed to support the whole child through intentional career advising practices. During this one-day event, presentations on career advising in middle school, leveraging business advisory councils, building financial literacy and entrepreneurial mindset, and the development of high quality work-based learning in your school will be provided. You will leave with innovative ideas and resources for kicking off the school year!
