How do you want to change the world?
We can help you figure out where to begin.
Connecting youth to real-world experiences to better determine a personal career path.
Maine 207 has a nationally-recognized career and counseling program aimed to do one thing: Help all students make the best decision about their plans after high school by letting them gain relevant career experience before committing money and time to pursue a degree and career.
The program is based on the national Project Lead the Way research. Here’s the premise: We believe that no matter what a student wants to do after leaving high school, having a chance to gain real experience in the field will help them make a better decision to increase their chances of “getting it right” in choosing a career path.
Currently, we are working to give every student an opportunity to have a job shadow, mentoring, internship or pre-apprenticeship experience before they make a post-secondary decision.
