The Career Journeys Toolkit

We’ve worked to create an all-in-one guide that is adaptable for classrooms (and learners) across the state. Alongside the video series, this toolkit includes resources to enrich the Career Journeys experience, through school-wide and in-class activities.  We’ve also included the Career Journeys design elements for further, independent exploration.
Our goal is to refine this toolkit as the project expands. Please direct any feedback or suggestions to the Career Journeys team.

Expanding Career Journeys

We’ve also worked to create additional video resources for adopting the Career Journeys video series in a variety of educational settings. 

Career Journeys for Parents & Guardians

As parents and guardians, you play a crucial role in guiding the young people in your life – as they navigate the world and make important decisions about their future. The ‘Career Journeys’ video series offers an exciting opportunity for parents and families in the state of Oregon to engage with the students in their lives. And to explore different career paths together. We made Career Journeys with one goal in mind: to help Oregon’s students dream big–and envision their own futures by sharing stories of young people living and working across the state. Now, parents can help their students discover the series with the help of our online Toolkit and Resources.

Career Journeys for Remote Learners

Remote-learning provides students with education that is accessible, flexible, and tailored to their individual needs and learning styles. By leveraging technology and innovative teaching practices, you, as remote-learning educators, are helping to bridge the gap between students and their education, while empowering them to pursue their academic and career goals from anywhere.

By incorporating the Career Journeys video series into your remote teaching, you can provide students with a powerful tool for exploring and understanding the world of work. You can help them build their confidence and self-awareness, and provide them with the inspiration and guidance they need to make informed decisions about their future.

Career Journeys Resources: Accelerated Alternative Learners

In today’s world, it can be challenging for students with special needs to understand the vast array of career opportunities available to them. Our video series provides a unique and engaging look at a variety of careers, helping these students to explore different paths and discover their passions and interests.

The “Career Journeys” series is a flexible and accessible resource that can be used in a variety of ways to enhance your students’ learning experience. Whether you choose to show the videos in one-on-one sessions, incorporate them into group activities, or use them as the basis for discussion and exploration, this series provides a wealth of information and inspiration that can support students in their career journeys.
