Career Development Applications (CDAs)

Overview

The Career Development Applications include 17 days of lesson plans designed to support self-discovery (aspects of self relevant to college and career planning), exploration of postsecondary education and career options, and the development of an individual College and Career Ready Plan that is informed by that self-discovery and exploration. The broad goal of these 17 days is to help students begin to "figure out who they are while they decide what they want to become."
