Career Counseling

Career Counselors work in collaboration with school counseling teams to support students’ career readiness and post-secondary goals. By facilitating early awareness sessions & working with high school students, both individually and in small groups, career counselors help students develop post-secondary plans based on their needs, interests, and abilities. Undecided or career-confused students are supported with resources, on-going text support, 1:1 counseling sessions, referrals and career planning workshops as needed.
