Two factors most influence a young person's success in our increasingly competitive global workplace: 1) superior, relevant education and 2) selecting a career area that fits their interests, skills and values. This web site was developed to help students achieve the second objective. It provides students, parents and counselors with quick, easy access to the very best resources for career and education planning.
CCLP was created and is maintained by the National Education Empowerment Foundation, a non-profit organization. College Career Life Planning has no commercial purpose (e.g. no fees, no advertising, nothing for sale, no pop-ups, no log-in). It will not seek nor accept grants nor donations of any kind for the services provided.
