February 2022 Career Exploration Month

We are here to help you celebrate Career Exploration and Career and Technical Education with the following tips.

The College and Career Planning Team newsletter is back in full swing. We know these events are a huge undertaking so we thank you for always rising to the occasion to support our students in their postsecondary endeavors!

Top Career Exploration Tips

  1. Register for “Supporting Every Student to Create a Plan”, a professional development workshop on Monday, January 31st, 2022.
  2. Download video clips and resources at Career Exploration Month Resource Hub to share with students . 
  3. Use Hashtag: #FutureReadyNYC to highlight your school’s activities and seniors who have applied/matched to career programs on your school’s website and social media. Ensure students have media consent forms before posting on social media. 
  4. Host your own activities for grades 9–12 by referring to the Postsecondary Planning Toolkit for additional resources.
