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. Refer to the district Regional Internship page for current opportunities.

Learn more about internships and Work Based Learning as well as more information on the district site regarding Career Connected Learning.
