Give Students the Tools & Opportunities They Need for Career Exploration and Readiness

As an educator, you know that motivation plays an important role in your students’ success. Students with a compelling vision for their future are more likely to stay engaged in the classroom, graduate from high school, pursue postsecondary training or education, and select high-demand, high-skill careers.

Career Connected Learning offers age-appropriate curriculum, teaching resources, and work-based learning opportunities to help Central Oregon students make the connection between the classroom and their future goals and ambitions in the world of work.
