Career Connections began in 2012 as a joint initiative among the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation, Ohio Board of Regents (now the Ohio Department of Higher Education), OhioMeansJobs and the Ohio Department of Education. The goal is to give K–12 students opportunities to become more aware of career opportunities; learn of their interests, talents and abilities; explore careers; and make academic and career plans for their future.
The Offices of Career-Technical Education and Learning and Instructional Strategies worked with regional work groups consisting of teachers, curriculum experts and school counselors to develop strategies that support integrating career-based learning experiences with academic content.
