Critical Components for A-Risk Youth Career Development

ROOM: Hall of Ideas H

Connecting Career Development

Kathy Eidsmoe, Education Consultant, CESA 1; Scott Carr, Assistant Director of Teaching and Learning, CESA 1

A meaningful foundation of self-knowledge, in relation to career cluster application, is the basis for at-risk students to utilize the ACP process to bring relevancy to their work and efficacy to their career decision making. This is facilitated by the development of Programs of Study that connect their self-knowledge and experiences to create a concrete path to their future. This will be critical to their current success and their endeavors yet to come. Tried and true methods using assessments, strengths-based psychology, and lessons that bridge self-knowledge to the world of work will be shared and utilized by participants in this workshop.
