Bridge Builders to the New Generation Career Readiness program invites students to explore a broad range of career opportunities while learning to identify their career interests, aptitudes, and learning styles. Students discover that they can gain critical experience and develop job-related skills, including math, technology, teamwork, leadership, and effective communications. They’ll learn more about themselves, their interests/abilities, and valid educational/career choices as they develop a career portfolio while practicing the principles of personal finance. The goal is to break down the barriers-of-entry for students with emotional and cognitive differences in their career-search process. The program takes a unique, 3-pronged approach by engaging our 1) students, 2) campus community and 3) employer partners in various events to achieve long-term, sustainable success for our students.
