Improving Career Exploration Opportunities for Adams-Friendship School District

Sustainable Development Goals04 Quality Education
Adams Friendship School District (AFSD) is looking to improve their career exploration program. Some of the main challenges faced within their current program include lack of student and teacher buy-in and lack of student exposure to diverse career options, due to their geographic location in a rural area in central Wisconsin. Both the middle and high schools have time allocated during advisory or homeroom sections each week for career exploration, but these sections are not fully effective due to the issues stated. The district’s career exploration program has had some major changes in recent years, including the implementation of a capstone project in the middle school, so our team focused on enhancing the success of the current program. To spur student and teacher interest and engagement in AFSD’s career exploration program, we created a wide range of deliverables, as well as a list of possible additional ideas to implement in the future.
