Come Work with Us
By 2028, 100 percent of the state’s high-growth, high-wage jobs will require education or training after high school. Yet, as of 2019, only 53 percent of working age Vermonters hold a postsecondary credential (apprenticeship, certificate, degree etc.)–well short of the state goal of 70 percent by 2025.
Advance Vermont is out to change that.
Founded in 2017, Advance Vermont unites business, education, government, non-profit, and philanthropy around a common goal to increase the attainment of post-high school credentials for the benefit Vermont’s civic and economic vitality. Our work strives to grow the aspirations for and completion of credentials, increase equity in educational attainment, and strengthen connections between education, training, and employment.
In 2021 we launched, MyFutureVT, an innovative online one-stop for career and education resources.
We are a small and dynamic team looking to have an outsized impact on Vermont. Join us.
