With Career Connected Learning, there are pathways to support students every step of the way, even outside of school. You’ll have the support from industry and labor leaders and intermediary organizations to put your students on a strong footing towards new opportunities.
We will work with you to develop “Flipped Internships” – a type of learning that challenges students to solve industry related problems. Your role is to lead the project and engage your students by introducing the industry specific problem, guide students along in their discovery, and support an industry partner in evaluating their suggested solutions over a series of classroom engagements.

If you have a passion for K12 career related learning and would like to have a voice in setting the objectives and priorities across the SW region, consider joining one of our industry focused work groups. These groups are open to K12 educators, administrators, and industry partners that have a particular knowledge and/or interest in the development of specific industry pathways. The current work groups focus on career paths in:
- Early Childhood Education
- Computer Science/IT
- Semiconductors and Electronics
If you have interest in participating in any of these work groups, let Vickei Hrdina know at email@example.com.
Career Readiness Opportunities
Virtual Career Panels
“You can’t be what you can’t see.” Career Connect SW hosted weekly, one-hour career panels online so that your students can see and hear from working professionals across many different career paths including medicine, business, engineering, and natural resources. Each week, we invited students and teachers from Southwest Washington to submit questions to these professionals.
