Our Commitment

Career Compass is committed to providing its services to public high school students at no cost to them or to their families. We’re able to do this because we rely on a mix of support from various sources that believe, like we do, that effective college and career coaching should be widely available to all students. Career Compass’ revenues come from contracts with educational institutions, grants and contributions from foundation and corporate supporters, and individual donations. Resources from grants and contracts are typically earmarked for specific programs at specific school sites. Support from individual donors and some corporate grants form the bedrock of funding for operational activities, and these funds allow some flexibility and enable us to respond to emerging needs.
