iCouldBe’s mission is to provide at-risk middle and high school students with an online community of professional mentors, empowering teens to stay in school, plan for future careers, and achieve in life.
Discover personal skills and talents. Reinforce positive self-concept. Relate school experience to occupational choices and work roles. Explore the relationship between work and broader life roles. Be introduced to the concept of lifelong learning.Users learn about themselves—their interests, skills, preferences and aspirations—so they can explore the opportunities right for them. They learn about career possibilities and educational pathways by exploring rich, engaging content. A dynamic, actionable plan outlines the steps needed to achieve career, school and life goals. Plans are then brought to life—whether for a career, job or college—by taking informed action.We bring early career awareness to elementary students with activities that invite them to play, watch, do, and explore. Secondary students receive comprehensive guidance as they build multi-year education plans and prepare for various options after high school and college.The unique needs of postsecondary students are addressed in a system complete with tools to aid college major selection, job interview preparation, ongoing financial aid, and more.Simply, AVID trains educators to use proven practices in order to prepare students for success in high school, college, and a career, especially students traditionally underrepresented in higher education.Users work through the Interest Profiler, Work Importance Profiler, and Assess Yourself assessment based on the Holland Codes for self-exploration. Comprehensive information on 900 occupations includes state specific wages, worker attributes, job characteristics, and much more. There are 300 career videos that give users a snap shot of the featured occupation. Job openings on Job Central are easily accessible within each occupations profile.Assessments, Job Families, Money Choices
