Career Development Activities

CTE Intro is designed to help the student learn more about himself or herself and more about the world of work.

OverviewCTE Introduction Logo
Career Development Activities include 19 days of lesson plans designed to help a student discover specific information about himself or herself through awareness, self-knowledge, and education and occupation exploration. The broad goal of these 19 days is to help students begin to "figure out who they are while they decide what they want to become."
