WELCOME MESSAGE FROM THE HEAD OF CAREER READINESS
Too many students are lacking the tools they need to succeed in the 21st century workforce. That's why we're committed to delivering a robust set of programs in career readiness. Through the Destinations Career Academies we run in partnership with K12-powered school partners, we're educating today's middle and high school students for the jobs and careers of tomorrow.
Whether it's through one of the five career fields, dual credit programs, hands-on learning and in-class skills training opportunities, or our project-based learning model, we are helping our nation's students find the life path that works best for them. For many students, this means getting a two- or four-year college degree right after high school in a field they are truly passionate about. And for other students, this means getting real-life work skills or specialized industry certifications so they are ready to enter the workforce right out of high school.
At our Destinations Career Academies around the country, we are helping students navigate the exciting and rapidly changing job market. Through K12-powered career readiness programs, we're helping kids grow professionally and personally.
My team and I are committed to providing career readiness and workforce development solutions that go beyond jobs traditionally aligned with vocational education. We want each and every K12-powered student to be prepared for the emerging job market of the future.
I hope you will join us in this effort.
