Parents Toolkit

The Central Pennsylvania Workforce Development Corporation has developed this Toolkit to help answer questions high school students and their parents may have about making career and education decisions.
In this toolkit, you will find a wealth of resources including information on making school count, how Pennsylvania State standards for career education and work can affect your child’s school experience, exploring careers and the importance of parent involvement in the process. We have included information about the steps you and your student can take now, the kinds of jobs that will be in demand over the next several years, and resources to help your student explore opportunities and plan for the future.
As a parent, you have the greatest influence on your child’s career decisions. Whether you are helping your student prepare for entrance into the workforce or a college experience, we hope that you will find the enclosed information useful and helpful.
