- 12th Grade Students

The primary goal of the Career Coaches Initiative is to continue and expand the comprehensive career advisement program targeted to 7th - L2th grade students. The Region ll Career Coaches Initiative began in March 2009 through funding through the Governor's Office of Workforce Development. The Program has experienced tremendous results with over 44,OOO students served thus far. Career Coaches assist students with their career aspirations, identifying postsecondary programs to their career goals, and referring those students to programs that will

10


facilitate students' reaching their desired academic and career goals. Career Coaches build lasting relationships with students through repeated interactions at their high schools. Activities include providing assistance in completing scholarship applications, college admission applications, providing resources about internship programs, short-term certificate training and other career opportunities, providing one-on-one career coaching including development career portfolios, sharing information about career pathways and connecting students to early college programs such as TRIO, Tech Prep and Dual Enrollment. The Career Coaches Initiative has been very successful across all of North Alabama. Career Coaches work very closely with students and high school counselors to implement best practices to better prepare students for success in postsecondary

education and in the workforce. In an effort to continuously improve the program, career coaches seek feedback from students, parents and school leaders. The comments below are taken directly from a Constont Contact Report - 20L3, a survey administered to high school teachers and counselors at the end of the school year; "Coreer coaching played o key role in educoting my students this foll.' "Her topics ore very well prepared and student friendly." "There ore so mony topics to oddress in this oreo thot it is impossible to cover them

all with one counselor at a high school. This is o vitol service thot helps meet our coreer requirement, and I am groteful for the help." "She is wonderful. She is always trying to find ways to help us out." "The students seem to connect with her well. She hos done on owesome job." "She is olwoys enthusiostic qnd willing; helps educate our students obout their options." It is clear from these comments that the Career Coaches Initiative must continue to fill the growing need of preparing our high school students for the real world.

Vlll.

Outcomes: Number of participants per college: At least 200 students per year per coach resulting in at least L,2OO participants over six colleges. In addition, measurable outcomes (per career coach) include:

o

Mr. Roger Fortner Coordinator of Workforce Development Governor's Office of Workforce Development Post Office Box 302130 Montgomery, Alab ama 36130-2130

Re:

Calhoun Community College Career Coach Grant ProPosal

Dear Roger: Calhoun Community College currently has six Career Coaches serving2S areahigh schools and numerous middle schools. Since the inception of Calhoun's Career Coach Program in 2009, 79,000 students have been served. The career coaches are a vital part of our educational system and I pledge my support to Calhoun's Career Coach proposal. Calhoun believes in this program so strongly that the College pays for five career coaches out of institutional funds totaling more than $200,000 per year in ialaries and benefits. Calhoun will continue to provide offibe space, phones, computer equipment and other necessary items for the success of the Career Coach program.

Calhoun's Career Coaches are well received by administrators and students at the atea schools they serve. Without the support of Calhoun's Career Coaches, many students would not have a clear direction for accomplishing their educational and career goals.

I strongly support this most

successful program and would like to ask you to consider funding

the regional proposal that is being submitted by Calhoun Community College. If you should have any questions or need additional information, please call me.

Thank you for your consideration of our proposal.

Dear Dr. Brabham:

It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of support and commitment for the J. F. Drake State Technical College Career Coaches Initiative. For the past several years, as a member of the North Alabama Career Coach Consortium, Drake State has been serving seven area high schools and their feeder middle schools to assist the school guidance counselors in working with their students to explore career options and undertake career interest assessments using the Kuder Career Planning System. Over the past three years alone, Drake State career coaches have served over 15,000 high school and middle school students. We look forward to continuing this valuable service to our area secondary school students. We thank the Department of Postsecondary Education, the Governo/s Office of Workforce

Development, the State Board of Education, and the Alabama Legislature for providing the valuable funds and guidance needed to sustain this important initiative. The Career Coach program is a vital investment in the future of our state and deserves the continued support of our public officials. We appreciate the role you play in moving this initiative forward. Thank you for your serious consideration of our request to maintain and enhance the Drake State Career Coach lnitiative. Sincerely,

Boaz AL35957 Dear Mr. Greer:

I wish to lend my support and the resources of the Hrurtsville Career Center for the proposals by J. F. Drake State Technical College to continue the College's Career Coaching, Dual Errrollment, and Readyto-Work initiatives and to enhance the capacity of the College to offer uaining in advanced manufacturing. Drake's plan includes support for unemployed and urrderemployd workers and veterans seekingjobs in manufacturing and related industries. These indrstries of norttr Alabama are anticipating a high growth rate over the next five to eight years. Drake State's programs will provide a great opportudty for local uneurployod and underemployed workers to gain well-payingjobs and contribute to the economic vitality of our area, The Huntsville Career Center is plcdged to assist local industries in finding qualified workers to fill their workforce needs. We have besn pleased to have otrr partnership with Dralce State to assist us in prcparing workers to gain the skills requircd for gainful employment with local firms. Norttr Alabama, because of expansion stimulatcd by BRAC and other locd economic development initiatives, is facing several years of high derrand for skilled workers. The current labor pool is not sufficient to meet this anticipated demand,

We are particularly excited about the aspect of the proposal that deals with building an ongoing pipelinc of young workers ttuough the Drake State affrliation with various high school prograrns in the city and county.

If you have any questions about my support of this proposal, you may contact

me on 256 851-0537.

the mainstay of Alabama's emerging workforce. It is critical that they graduate tiom high school with either a plan for postsecondary education or a OenneO pathway into the workforce. The Career Coaches program will enhance the services our schools provide but will provide more one-on-one contact than what we are able to offer. Today's high school guidance counselors must address a broad range of students' needs including t iglt academic achievers and at-risk students. With all of their responsibilities, ttre guiOance counselors have little time to do career counseling. The Career Coaches program you are proposing w'ill fill that void.

You have my full support in this critical endeavor.

Dear Dr. Exley,

It is with great enthusiasm that I offer the support of Asbury High School in the Marshall County Schools for the Career Coaches program. As the Superintendent, I recognizethe importance of having the Career Coaches assist our students. These students are considered by indusbry to be the mainstay of Alabama's emerging workforce. It is critical that they graduate from high school with either a plan for postsecondary education or a defined pathway into the workforce. The Career Coaches program will enhance the services our schools provide but, will provide more one-on one contact than what we are able to offer. Today's high school guidance counselors must address a broad range of students' needs including high academic achievers and at-risk students. With all of their responsibilities, the guidance counselors have lifile time to do career counseling. The Career Coaches program you are proposing will fill that void.

You have my full support in this critical endeavor. Each high school will support the program by offering access to students, providing space in which to meet with students, and other such appropriate services. If I can offer additional support, please contact me directly. I look forward to being apart of, and seeing the success of this program. Our students deserve the best that we can offer and this program is supportive of that mission.

&,

Sincerely,

Amv Pri.9 Principal
