Dr. Julie Cerrito has recently released a white paper that thoroughly examines early career awareness and how developing these foundational concepts at a younger age produces profound benefits for students later in their academic and personal lives. 

Although this approach is dissimilar to that used by most school districts today who begin introducing college and career readiness programming in middle or high school, the efficacy and residual advantage of elementary career exploration cannot be denied. 

“There are various junctures that can be considered pivotal points for career development – elementary school is, without question, one of them.” – Dr. Julie Cerrito
