From the Community

Students often say to teachers "Why do I need to learn this? or How is this going to help me in my career?" Career Launch's cutting-edge curriculum provides relevant and practical professional development skills. I love how the curriculum is scaffolded and provided in multiple modes of delivery to accommodate all types of learners. 

It's exciting to see Career Launch's enrichment programs supporting our students at LVUSD and helping so many students across the State. And it's even more exciting---to achieve greater equity---to see CTE teachers putting the curriculum into their courses.....and for English teachers to be embedding it into the Core!

"The Career Launch programming helped my students understand the importance of taking action. My students benefitted from reaching out to professionals in leadership and managerial positions, which helped them gain valuable insights of how the professional world works. 

Overall, students gained so much confidence knowing that can control outcomes to support their futures!"

Eric Tenorio, Teacher & Summer Internship Coordinator
Anaheim Union High School District

"The Career Launch curriculum goes beyond just informing students about various careers as it teaches students concrete skills on how to navigate the search for a career while enhancing their social capital. 

My students practiced real-world professional communication skills and rose to meet that challenge. It is truly a great experience for them."

Charlene Leang, English Teacher, Department Chair, Title 1 Coordinator
Western High School

“It's really fun and rewarding to see students' self-confidence increase as a result of having the opportunity to learn and implement the teachings in the Career Launch curriculum.

We were an early adopter of Career Launch and it's a joy to see how impact and partnerships are scaling across the country.

“The Career Launch high school program is a great way for high school students to explore potential careers while developing their professional network. The communication skills that students learn and practice during this authentic experience are critical to college, career, and life success. 

Students who complete the program are well-prepared to continue having career conversations to find their voice and purpose while building connections to assist them in their career journey.”

"I love this program so much! It allowed me to learn and experience new things at my own pace. I feel like I’ll be able to succeed a lot more in finding my career path. 

For example, yesterday my friend mentioned she doesn't know how to get internships or reach to companies for questions. I realized that I knew exactly what to do and how to do it. It made me feel like I gained a large amount of information that will constantly be useful."

"Thank you for the wonderful learning opportunity for the past month. The workbook and videos were filled with plentiful knowledge that I was able to gain and reference during this past month and will continue to use and reference for the future as I will continue to explore career options throughout high school and on. 

I would like to thank all of you for the extremely supportive zoom calls. Every time I left a zoom call, I felt more motivated and more excited to do more. Thank you for all the advice, tips, and encouragement that you offered and supplied.
Again, thank you for the opportunity and the knowledge."
