A month-long virtual event with workshops, campus visits and more

High school students and parents, whether you’re college-bound, training-bound or not sure, College & Career Pathways is the one-stop online resource and month-long virtual event.

Throughout the month of March, Vermont Student Assistance Corp. will offer live virtual workshops, led by local experts, who give you the how-to and answer your questions.

Workshops include:

Identifying Your Career Interests: Wednesday, March 3, 3-4 p.m.

VSAC will also partner with more than 10 Vermont colleges and training programs to offer live virtual tours and info sessions. All presentations will be recorded and available for later viewing as well.

The pandemic has highlighted the critical importance of education and training that all Vermonters must have to fill essential roles in our communities – like health care, mental health, technology, and manufacturing. In fact, all of Vermont’s high-growth, high-wage jobs require education and training after high school. Discovering the path that best fits your individual needs and interests starts with College & Career Pathways.

The new online format includes videos and guided questions for Vermont high school students and their families. Each video features local experts, who will walk you through options, concrete next steps, and how to find the right resources to pursue your education and career goals.

While College & Career Pathways is primarily intended for 10th and 11th grade students, there is plenty of information for older or younger students depending on where you are at in your planning process. To register or for more info visit:
