CAOA Program

 

Each year, Career Analysis curriculum writers employ rigorous testing sessions to produce new and innovative curricula that align with national and state education standards and foster the implementation of life skills and career exploration which is imperative to success in a competitive global workforce.  In each Career Analysis Program students rotate through four enrichment aspects of the program each class, each of which encourages money management, business etiquette, business ethics, and career exploration.  

The school program entails 18 sessions which can be held during school or as an afterschool program. Some schools do provide credit to their students for participating. Please contact your local school for further information.

This session is a must for young students rooted in a social climate of debt and financial uncertainty.
