Career Connected Learning (CCL)
What is Career Connected Learning?
Career connected learning is a career awareness program for rising Seattle students to explore careers, meet a variety of industry professionals, and build an initial career and education plan. Business partners and students can become involved through service-learning projects, work experience, and internships.
Career connected learning can be:
- a businessperson visiting a classroom to talk about what they do
- a job shadow where a young person learns more about an occupation or business.
- an internship or a registered apprenticeship where youth are paid while they learn hands-on skills.
Career Connected Learning Coordinators provide students with information on careers, post-secondary education opportunities, administer career assessment tools, plan on-site presentations and workshops, manage communication and organize career fairs.
