GPS for Success
GPS for Success is a new multi-platform website that students and adults can use to learn about career opportunities, income potential and education/training requirements in 16 career clusters identified nationally and locally as experiencing a shortage of skilled workers entering the workforce. The website features digital content showcasing the identified careers as a distinct group of occupations and industries based on the knowledge and skills they require. The goal is to help students of all ages explore different career options and better prepare for college and/or a vocational career. GPS for Success is a critical resource for cash-strapped school districts, now required to complete career planing for all students. This will be promoted to 35 school districts in Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence Counties as a career planning tool and utilized at career day events. BOCES will also use the site as a tool for career pathing for adult education students. Nearly 3,000 6th-9th grade students will be exposed to the website content, in addition to students in other grades and those in BOCES adult education programs.
