The World of Work Helps Schools Align Students’ Dreams with Their Unique Strengths, Interests, and Values
By the age of seven, most kids already have hopes and dreams for their futures. Modern education often times places a high emphasis on certain careers without giving students the knowledge of the many other career paths and options available to them. With the landscape of the workforce changing and evolving regularly, it is time for school systems to catch up. The World of Work shows schools, parents, and students that many careers exist and are available as a future career option to them.
The World of Work meets the needs of future employees and employers and supports the development of every child’s unique strengths, interests, and values to prepare them for real world opportunities. The World of Work connects families, teachers, students, and industries together with career development tools and learning opportunities that develop their talents. The curriculum in the World of Work program helps teachers to provide support to each student to guide them to a future full of hope. Teachers love this initiative because it connects what they are learning in class to exciting future career paths. This helps students to feel more engaged in their lesson and excited about school. With curriculum for all grade levels, the World of Work shows every student that there is a place for them and that they are important to the future of communities and the workforce.
