Northeast Career Edventure

All NE Career Ed Venture activities and resources are meant to complement our area schools’ current efforts to prepare students for life and the world of work.

Northeast Career EdVenture  … 

a strong partnership between the K12 system, the public workforce development system, and the business community.

Students need the right career advice to be steered in a direction that best fits their individual personality and abilities.  With college drop-out rates climbing and student debt mounting, sending kids out into the world without a clue about the best career and training choices for them only results in lost time and money.

We are here to share the expertise of our established workforce development system with students across the region to ensure they make an informed decision for themselves, and their future along with graduating with an understanding of what employers expect of them as they enter the labor force. 

Northeast Career EdVenture is in no way meant to displace school guidance counselors, but rather to assist with providing career planning services, a critical piece for an informed and prepared workforce.  All our Career Counselors possess a Bachelor or Master degree in the social sciences, are highly trained (many of whom are ex-educators themselves) and knowledgeable about job and career opportunities, locally and further afield.  

Through Northeast Career EdVenture, the business community has the opportunity to become involved with their local school, influence their future workforce, share their business expertise and give back to the community.
