GRADE 6-9 Career Intentions and Perceptions Survey

Workforce Development

This project will strive to understand the perceptions of “blue” careers among today’s youth. Understanding their intentions and influences will provide useful insights to inform recommendations for the design of future awareness/exposure building initiatives and career development programs to help us shift the dial on this workforce challenge. Surveying younger students will provide useful insights into understanding when and how their career perceptions are formed, which could signal optimal periods for targeting career counseling and awareness and exposure building programs relate to the Blue Economy.
