As an educator you have the power and influence to help students discover a career pathway that encourages them to reach their goals and ambitions. NIACC Career Connections can connect you to businesses through work-based career educator activities and student activities and provide reimbursement for transportation and substitute expenses.
NIACC Career Connections career exploration activities will expand your business and industry knowledge by providing time at a work site that is directly related to your discipline. This provides real world practices you can take back to your classroom and align and incorporate into your curriculum. You can help your students understand that what they are learning in school is applicable to life. Showing your students the relevance of classroom activities and the relationship between work and the classroom helps them stay focused and encourages them to do their best.
