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. And we can help.
We created Career Compass because we observed a disconnect between the information that was available to students regarding their post-secondary options, and the ability to act on that information.
Only 27.3% of adults age 25+ have an associate’s, bachelor’s, or graduate degree.
Only 59% of Louisiana high school graduates enter a post-secondary school when they graduate.
98% of Career Compass students applied to a post-secondary program that they could successfully complete. And 75% are still attending school!
Career Compass of Louisiana is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and is a GuideStar Silver Participant. 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 $10, Career Compass dedicates $8 to direct program services that impacts 6 - 12th grade students. Your contribution is tax deductible.
