Hi Career Development Community Members:
Welcome to the Career Development Microgroup! I hope you had a chance to listen/watch the introductory video to this month-long microgroup! I also hope that you will share your examples and strategies related to career development across youth and adult settings. Think about the following questions….
- What career development strategies do you use in your setting?
- Are these strategies used across high school and adult education?
- How do you measure the impacts of these strategies?
- What resources have you identified that are critical to implementing career development in your learning environment?
Judy Shanley, Ph.D.
In a review of data from the National Secondary Transition Technical Assistance Center (www.nsttac.org), researchers found that student engagement - and the active participation of youth in career planning, improves post school outcomes.
- Did you know about this Federal Interagency effort described below?
- What strategies do you use to ensure that students are active participants in career planning?
- Can you use examples from this web resource to implement your own youth empowerment programs?
The Interagency Working Group on Youth Programs created a new Web site Youth Engaged 4 Change (YE4C) in partnership with youth and young adults who make positive change happen every day. YE4C celebrates “change makers” who are making a difference in the world, promotes meaningful relationships between youth and adults, and connects youth with federal resources and opportunities. To view the Web site, visit: http://engage.findyouthinfo.gov/. You can also share ideas for enhancing youth engagement.
