School To Career Activities

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.
