PPC releases report: Promising Pathways to Careers

September 30, 2011

Throughout Pennsylvania, new technologies are creating new career fields and changing traditional ones. Every young person can find a career to be passionate about, whether it requires an industry credential, associate's degree or a doctorate.

Unfortunately, young people and their families rarely know about the jobs emerging from the new economy, or the education and skills needed to attain them. One solution to this dilemma is work-based learning – diverse methods and strategies for exposing young people to career possibilities, immersing them in the work world, and developing action plans leading to specific career goals. Work-based learning spans from middle school into postsecondary education, providing structured experiences and exposing young people to a range of occupations and careers.
