About the CDE Guide PowerPoint Presentation (PPT)

This new version of the CDE guide provides an update to this popular publication, drawing fresh examples from the work of the Connecting Activities network statewide. The guide looks at a continuum of career development experiences, from career awareness to career exploration to career immersion, giving examples of how schools can provide opportunities for students to have these experiences and how to structure a cohesive approach to career development education.

The guide is valuable, providing ideas and insights and opening up good conversations, for school leaders, CA program leaders and others who support youth in their career development.
