An age-appropriate career development resource
For younger students, career learning is not about researching and choosing a career that matches personal skills, interests and goals. It’s about acquiring essential age-appropriate life skills like self- awareness and understanding how important it is to plan ahead. Teachers, administrators and educators will be pleased to know that ccSpark! is carefully designed to meet National Career Development Standards to ensure that every activity has a strong curricular foundation.
