Welcome to Career Connections!
If you’re ready to make a difference in the lives of local students, we’re ready to help you find the best way.
Career Connections is a community based platform intended to help teachers and
students connect their education and ambition to local careers, through internships, job shadowing, mock interviews and classroom speakers.
For decades, colleges and trade schools have recognized the importance of connecting their students to local employment opportunities. But what if the connection between students and potential careers began in high school, junior high and even in elementary school? Career Connections was born from the idea that teachers, students, businesses and volunteers need a simple and efficient way to find each other. Using the online portal, teachers can log on and request a business volunteer according to industry, expertise and availability. To date, there are over 100 businesses registered, 175 volunteers and 40 internships posted.
