Career Compass of Louisiana is an educational non-profit organization dedicated to helping high school students achieve their post-secondary aspirations. Our goal is to remove obstacles that would keep students from succeeding following high school graduation.
We believe there is a pathway to college and career for all students, regardless of background, academic record, family history, or other factors.
30.1% of Louisina adults age 25+ have an associate, bachelor’s, or graduate degree (Lumina Foundation, 2017).
By 2020, 56% of job openings in Louisiana will require post-secondary education (CEW Georgetown, 2013).
98% of Career Compass students applied to a post-secondary program that they could successfully complete (Career Compass, 2017).
Career Compass of Louisiana is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and is Guidestar-rated. We work with Louisiana public schools to ensure that every student has a pathway to college and career. We're able to provide our services free to all students in partner schools because of support from individuals like you.
For every tax-deductible contribution of $10, Career Compass dedicates $8 to direct program services.
