We’re creating more vibrant communities across the country by bringing education and industry together in one place. ccInspire helps students discover careers that inspire them, by connecting with local companies offering career development opportunities like job shadows, internships and company tours. Employers nourish their talent pipeline by providing content, mentoring and sharing valuable knowledge with local students.
ccInspire doesn’t just inform students about real careers and what it takes to succeed in the real world. It inspires students by bringing the real world right into the classroom and integrating real employers into the curriculum in powerfully motivating ways. It’s more interactive, dynamic and engaging than any other career development program.
Employers have told us that they are always looking for more effective ways to reach out to students and forge new connections. ccInspire is the answer. It gives employers a unique opportunity to begin mutually rewarding relationships with students that could last a lifetime. It puts real companies front and center in the classroom, where they can be a positive influence by educating students about the kind of talent and education they look for when they are hiring. Students say this is exciting and motivating.
Educators report that ccInspire is a tremendously effective organizer and enabler in their efforts to teach students about careers. It saves local schools and larger districts time and money, because it is an integrated central coordinator of their activities. It makes learning real by bringing employers and students together. That’s why ccInspire is the most efficient and most effective way to motivate students to work harder in the classroom, so they can acquire the education and skills employers need.
ccInspire is more than a gateway for students to the world of work. It’s more than a portal for employers who see the value in nourishing their future talent pool. ccInspire is an engine of prosperity for local communities and entire regions. By connecting employers with students through regional implementations across the country, it is helping to prevent ‘brain drain’. Students are less likely to leave their local area after graduating, to pursue employment elsewhere. Developing a strong local workforce helps communities prosper.
