June Trustee Webinar: College and Career Transition Counselor Initiative
The Iowa College and Career Transition Counselor (CCTC) Initiative allows for Community Colleges and high schools to share positions that help students in exploring college career options and preparing for careers with necessary training and education. CCTC counselors will spend time at high schools each week, providing students with information about various career options; helping shape their career exploration and studies; and providing guidance and assistance so that students identify career and educational goals and take the necessary steps to make a successful transition from high school to college and careers. There are currently 25 College and Career Transition Counselors serving across the state of Iowa, reaching at least 10,000 students. Next year, this number will grow to at least 53 counselors reaching over 21,000 students with the support of $2 million in federal Community Project Funding. Join us in learning more about the important initiatives and the challenges and opportunities in the coming years.
