WELCOME to the CEC DISCOVER Partnership Program!
Through our programs and classroom presentations, students are introduced to the changing dynamics of the current workforce focusing on technical skills as the new currency.
Students are taught how to assess their skills and interests; explore career choices; research post-secondary education and training; and make informed decisions when choosing their career path and creating a career plan.
The DISCOVER Partnership, spearheaded by the CEC, is a business and education partnership committed to creating programs that educate residents and young people about the career opportunities available in Elk and Cameron Counties.
The partnership is aimed at helping students “DISCOVER” what the region has to offer and plans programs that form connections between students, local companies and communities.
