Vol. 25, No. 1: Great Things Happening in the New Year

From the Director . . .

Debbie Mills, Director, NCPN

Col-lab-o-ra-tion—the act of working with someone to produce or create something. Collaboration is working with others to do a task and to achieve shared goals. It is more than a word. It is an action. And we are seeing it take place at the state and national levels in the Career Pathways arena. At the national level, three agencies (U.S. Department of Education, U.S. Department of Labor, and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services) have come together to support Career Pathways.

All three agencies have made investments in Career Pathways such as grants, toolkits, and other forms of technical assistance to the states and local agencies. The National Career Pathways Network supports these agencies and their work and has invited representatives from all three agencies . . .

  • Administration of Children and Families, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services;

  • Career, Technical, and Adult Education, U.S. Department of Education; and

  • Employment and Training, U.S. Department of Labor

. . . to come together on stage to present their collaborative work in Career Pathways. The 2015 NCPN Conference in Dallas will highlight and support the Career Pathways work of these national-level agencies. Having personnel from all three share their interagency work will make for an exciting conference.

For more information on each agency's work, see the links below. For more information on the NCPN conference, go to www.ncpn.info. Mark your calendar! (October 28–30, 2015).
