Spokane STEM is now Career Connect Northeast (CCNE), one of nine regional networks across the State of Washington, in partnership with Career Connect Washington. GSI serves as the backbone of the Network, providing career-connected learning and STEM experiences for our region. Program outcomes are aligned with the region’s economic needs through cross-sector partnerships.
What is Career Connected Learning?
Career connected learning connects students with real-world experience combined with relevant classroom learning. These experiences better prepare students for future education and career opportunities.
Career Connect Northeast Washington is defined by our NorthEast Washington Educational Service District 101 boundaries – Stevens, Ferry, Pend Oreille, Lincoln, Spokane, Whitman, and Adams counties.
Are you interested in applying for grant funds to develop a career program in our greater Northeast Washington region via Career Connect Washington? Applications will open again in early March and we are hosting three virtual sessions to learn more and gain advice. Any one is welcome to attend – one, two or all three.
