  • Atlanta, GA (1888PressRelease) June 28, 2016 - YouScience, developers of a next-generation career guidance platform, in partnership with the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB), a non-profit organization that works with states, policymakers and educators to improve public education, will be awarding grant programs for 100 qualifying high schools at the SREB High Schools That Work (HSTW) Conference. The partnership between YouScience and SREB will give educators the most innovative online career guidance capability at no cost to these schools.

    Working with corporate partners and SREB, YouScience will provide up to 100 high schools with a "Career Guidance That Works" grant to cover the costs of providing YouScience Profiles to an entire grade level (no restriction on class size) during the 2016-2017 academic school year. YouScience profiles combine real measures of aptitudes and interests to match students with over 500 careers choices where they will be most successful based on their natural abilities. The grant application for interested high schools will be available onsite at the YouScience booth during the conference.

    The 30th Annual High Schools That Work Staff Development Conference will be held July 13-16, 2016, in Louisville, Kentucky. The conference provides innovative, proven strategies that will prepare students with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in school and the 21st-century workplace.

    "We look forward to participating in the 30th Annual SREB Conference," said Philip Hardin, YouScience CEO. "SREB has been a valued partner to YouScience during our growth, so we want to recognize their foresight and encouragement regarding our innovative, data-driven, online career guidance solution. However, this opportunity is only for conference attendees, so be sure and register today."

    SREB is the only organization of its kind that nurtures districtwide and schoolwide team development and team-wide strategic planning onsite. SREB trains these teams with best practices, curriculum design, new teaching and career counseling strategies, and more.

    "High Schools That Work embeds ongoing career advisement and hands-on career exploratory activities," said Gene Bottoms, SREB Senior Vice President. "YouScience is the best first-step tool inspiring students to pursue an education path that is best suited for their interests and aptitudes, helping students understand their strengths and broaden their vision of opportunity earlier in the process, making them more effective members of the workforce."
