Our Vision

This initiative is bringing “Local answers for local students.” With Monterey Bay Career Coach, students are able to choose appropriate educational options aligned to promising local careers, counselors are able to access a user-friendly website to efficiently support student program and career planning, and college faculty can easily align curricula, certificates and degrees with up-to-date employer needs.

Our Story

We visualize our future with a  well-educated community where every child realizes their full learning potential; every child is prepared to enter school, is supported in and out of school to achieve academically, where every young adult attains a college degree or credential, and successfully enters a career path offering a lifetime of value.

Our Monterey Bay Career Connect Student Ambassadors

The Student Ambassadors are student leaders and role models at each campus who help to educate the community (e.g. students, staff, families, student organizations, etc.) on the college and career resources offered on Monterey Bay Career Connect.  Each Student Ambassador cohort gets the opportunity to inform and inspire emerging young professionals and offer unique professional development opportunities to students across the Monterey Bay region.  Interested in becoming a Student Ambassador?
