“I like to think of the Essential Skills as a muscle. If you want to grow or strengthen any muscle in your body, you have to work at it, you have to exercise it. There’s no better way to do that than through a CCR Training.”

– Greg Muccio, ‎Director Talent Acquisition, ‎Southwest Airlines

COVID has changed the way students move through the pipeline to the workplace and college: businesses and corporations need to recalibrate how they support young people to become college and career ready.

Over the last decade, CFES Brilliant Pathways has helped dozens of corporations create programs that prepare low-income students for college and the workplace. CFES designed EY’s College MAP (Mentoring for Access & Persistence) program that has helped 2,000 youth in 38 cities attain degrees. Colgate Palmolive and CFES recently partnered where Colgate employees shared their pathways to higher education and the workplace with 1800 CFES students. Other recent CFES partners include: Boston Celtics, Atlanta Hawks, GE, Southwest Airlines and TransPerfect.

CFES can create individualized programs for corporations, train employees to mentor and support students in local communities and even identify an ideal school for a corporate partnership. To help corporate leaders develop the skills and knowledge they need to move the next generation through the pipeline, CFES is offering a five-session training in March. The CCR (College & Career Readiness) Advisor training for corporate leaders will begin on March 23, 2021. Each session runs between 45 and 60 minutes; participants who complete the training will be certified by the University of Vermont.

CCR Training is $1,500 per person, with discounts for groups. Training is certified by The University of Vermont and professional support from CFES will be available after completion!

Sessions

Each training consists of two live video sessions scheduled one week apart, and three on-demand sessions that participants view at their convenience prior to the closing session. Participants must attend both the opening and closing live video sessions.

Session 1: Opening (Live)

This live OPENING session will be led by Dean Garfield, VP for Netflix, Rick Dalton, CFES President and CEO, alongside two CFES professionals, Tara Smith and Ron Rix. Components of session 1 will include: how corporations can build the future workforce pipeline; the role CFES has played in supporting corporations in these ventures; new paradigms in education and the workforce; how education is the great equalizer; and the impact of COVID on college readiness.

Session 2: Understanding New Landscapes (On-Demand)

How today’s students and the higher education landscape have changed, and what this means for how we support our youth. Session 2 will explore ways to help today’s students cope with stress and other issues exacerbated by the pandemic; how students can take advantage of a college admissions landscape that now offers greater opportunities for admissions and financial support; and the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion in preparing students to enter college from both rural and urban areas.

Session 3: Building Pathways (On-Demand)

Session 3 will focus on how corporate and business volunteers can help students build career/workforce readiness, including developing the Essential Skills, critical not only for college and the workplace, but in life. Corporate leaders will share how to provide students with opportunities and resources to help them embark on their career pathways and identify and share the core values of your business.

Session 4: Impacting Youth: The Value of Mentoring (On-Demand)

This session will guide you, as a mentor, in communicating with and relating to young people, helping you build the tools needed to support scholars in creating pathways to college and career. A mentor can help a young person: overcome challenges, make personal gains in academic performance, explore career opportunities and build lifelong support networks.

Session 5: Closing (Live)

The CLOSING session will be led by Greg Muccio, Director of Talent Acquisition at Southwest Airlines, and two CFES professionals, Tara Smith and Ron Rix. The purpose is to provide participants with resources and tools to help students understand what they need to be successful in college and career to become part of the workforce of tomorrow. These tools include the Brilliant Career Lab and Scholar Map to help students identify potential careers, Essential Skills lessons, e-mentoring, live webinars and virtual college tours.
