We crowdsource college and career advice for young people through Q&A with business professionals (YOU!) online.

How it works: Students visit and post questions about any career. The platform then analyzes those questions and automatically distributes them to matching members of our online volunteer corps. What sets us apart for youth is how personalized and accessible the advice is. Students are able to interact with and learn from Professionals who do the jobs they’re interested in doing one day and who have once been in their shoes, all from the convenience of their smart phones or computers! In addition to getting the information they’re seeking, students are also getting a lot of what they don’t often directly ask for but what they need most: encouragement. acts as a community of adults who educate, inspire, and give confidence to the young people who need it most.

Since our start five years ago, more than 2.1 million young people have benefited from advice on CareerVillage, and on average 20,000 students visit the platform each week to prepare for the world of work.
