Career Pathways Initiative

Today, almost a third of our students nationwide leave high school without the skills necessary to succeed in college, to participate in a 21st century workforce, or to earn a family-supporting living. San Diego students are not excluded from this problem. In fact, there are 43,000 young adults in our community that are disconnected, not working or in school.

We believe that the expansion of career pathways for San Diego students are a means for equity in education. Furthermore, we believe that by collectively working to increase the number of work-based learning opportunities available, we can prepare our students for the jobs of the future. With the generous support of INFORM Journeys and other funders, the Classroom of the Future seeks to address this problem through the Career Pathways Initiative. The goal of this initiative is to provide every learner with a relevant experience to be future ready. To that end, CFF works to convene the business and education community throughout the year, offer professional development to educators, provide career discovery experiences to students, and support regional career pathway collaborations.

This initiative includes the following components:

Together, we can prepare our students to be our future workforce.
