Career Analysis Organization
Career Analysis Organization of America (CAOA) is a nonprofit organization that was founded in 2008. The year marked one of America’s largest economic downturns. America's entire financial sector was going bankrupt, and economic scholars cited lack of financial education among the people of our country as a key factor. Americans were accumulating credit card debt, taking out high interest rate loans, and depending on jobs that would eventually cease to exist.
Students are graduating our high schools without the proper information and education about their next step. They are applying for student loans without the proper guidance and education to make those informed decisions. To prevent this from continuing Career Analysis Organization of America is partnering with schools and school districts that are innovative and are willing to take the initiative to make a positive impact for the students in the communities they serve.
The high caliber co-curricular programs through CAOA help bridge the gap between high school, college and the real world. This is accomplished by providing students with professional and personal developmental opportunities through leadership skills training for work ethics certification, mentoring and education in personal finance, and career pathways. As a member of the National Career Development Association CAOA has been nominated for the 2011 Pepsi Refresh Project, 2012 Chicago Innovation Award, the Indiana Chamber of Commerce 2018 IMPACT Award and recevied the Business and Education Partner Award from the Elkhart Chamber of Commerce.
We look forward to helping your students and your schools in your community.
We Make A Difference
- We keep high school students in school until they graduate. When a high school student understands that the classes they are taking will lead them towards their future career goal students stay in school and get better grades.
- Students discover their career pathway. Through our career analysis process students discover their next step after high school of either trade school, work, or college.
- Students become successful adults. Through our college and career readiness programs students have learned important life skills such as money management, work ethics and business etiquette to be successful in the real world.
- Our program unites each student with their passion. Companies are happy when they have employees that want to be there because they are passionate about their career and not just about the paycheck.
