School to Career

Success in the New Economy from Brian Y. Marsh on Vimeo.

We offer many ways for high school students, educators and area businesses to partner in  innovative school-to-career programs.  Some programs fit the needs of students who want to move right into a rewarding job after graduation. Others are designed to help college-bound students explore a promising career.  Educators can have the opportunity to work with area businesses to gain support of their local education needs.  All provide comprehensive support to students, educators, and business/industry representatives participating in School to Career.

As a result, we help forge early, strong and often lasting connections to rewarding career paths for students and educators.  Our goal is to help boost the numbers and talent of a more productive workforce for employers in Dane County and beyond.
