Dream2Career creates on-ramps for students to find and prepare for dream careers. We’ve created an algorithm that quickly matches students’ career aspirations with training opportunities. The D2C Directory is built based on recommendations of local business professionals who are seeking to fill entry-level jobs. We organize and promote work-learn programs to help students find and tap into existing career networks, resources, and structures.
We’ve worked with many great leaders along the way who have helped to shape Dream2Career’s philosophy. Dream2Career was founded in 2017 and has been creating synergies between workforce and education ever since.
Proceeds from the D2C directory fund career readiness programs throughout the nation.
In addition to a fully formed Board of Directors made up of educators, parents and business professionals, we have a host of volunteers and our full-time staff. If you are interested in joining our growing D2C team or becoming a volunteer contact us today!
We want every student to have the opportunity to have access to affordable business recommended career pathways that lead to sustainable careers. Our Mission is to transform the workforce pipeline so that it is helpful in connecting talented students with future workforce needs.
The Dream2Career project began in 2015 with a professor’s vision and with the help of her students. Many graduates felt that their education did not adequately prepare them for the high demand and emerging industry jobs that existed in their communities. Recently, businesses and educators started working together on work-learn programs so that students can make informed career decisions before they waste time on the wrong training programs. There are many opportunities emerging yet the average student misses career exploration opportunities. We want to put business-led content directly in front of students so they can be inspired to learn in the format and structure most suited to their interests. Educators can now quickly access these work-learn networks and expose students to opportunities in ways that match and supplement the current curriculum.
