Elevating Your Future

Become College and Career Ready!

Employers are excited to support your high school journey by helping you prepare for life after graduation. Whether you decide to enroll in college or enter the workforce, ElevateEdAZ will make sure you get experiences that help you succeed in school and beyond.

Work-Based Learning

Employers will provide Work-Based Learning (WBL) experiences for you and your classmates. WBL is an activity that allows you to explore career options while connecting what you learn in class directly to careers. For example, as part of your English class, you could apply what you learn by working with a marketing firm to create social media posts for local companies to sell their product!

Work-Based Learning includes:

Guest Speakers and Teachers

Field Trips

Mock Interviews

Internships

Job Shadowing

High School Career Connect

The experience is designed to inspire and inform rising high school students who are beginning to form their own career identity and a vision for their future. Through a series of virtual sessions with employers and college programs, students will learn about opportunities in high-growth industries in Arizona.

Through group activities and interactive sessions with Lead Facilitators, students will explore the world of work through the lens of their own interests and gifts. As a capstone activity, students will engage in an applied consultancy, presenting recommendations and improvements to career exploration materials used by the Center for the Future of Arizona.
