College and Career Event Planning Toolkit
Communities have tremendous influence over the trajectory of Vermont residents. For communities to flourish, those who live there need enough education and training to earn a livable wage in a job they find meaningful, as well as be productive and engaged in the community. Regionally based college and career events can help students of all ages, backgrounds, and interests access education and training resources. These events send the message to individuals that the community supports them in pursuing their dreams.

To support Vermont’s community leaders in developing successful college and career events, Advance Vermont and VSAC have partnered to develop the College and Career Event Planning Toolkit. The toolkit is a guide to planning these events in Vermont, including checklists, tips, templates, and resources.
