Workforce GPS: College and Career Readiness Guide for Navigators

The College and Career Readiness: A Guide for Navigators resource is extremely helpful for career counselors and career advisors who are working directly with students. This guide is also beneficial for teachers, youth workers, mentors, and other advocates.  While designed with a youth population in mind, the guide offers valuable resources for career navigators working with adult learners as well. 

From the guide:

While there are many websites and resources that provide students with college and career information, most focus on achieving short-term success — college admission or finding work — rather than the critical connections between college and career readiness.

This guide is different. It highlights what navigators can do to nurture the critical connections young people must make between college and career readiness. Planning for future success requires an integrated approach that helps students understand their education and career options and what they must do to become prepared. This guide identifies action steps that people can take to achieve their college and career goals. The knowledge and skills outlined in it are specific and teachable.

Decide for yourself, and let us know if this resource works with your adult learners.
