Navient Partners with Boys & Girls Clubs of America on Career Programs

The future is uncertain for millions of young people, even more so with education and support systems disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. That’s why it’s more important now than ever to give young people the resources they need to prepare for life after graduation. Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Roadtrip Nation recently announced a new partnership introducing different careers to young people virtually.

Thanks to support from Navient, The Coca-Cola Company, Dell Technologies and Raytheon Technologies, millions of youth will now have access to Roadmap to Careers, a program connecting students to careers aligning with their personal interests and helping them take their first steps toward pursuing those opportunities, according to a news release from Navient, an ACA International member company in Wilmington, Delaware.

With the support from Navient, Boys & Girls Clubs members will be connected to career exploration resources drawing from 45-plus years of helping students pursue college. Navient is creating a digital hub of resources on higher education options and financial preparation for Boys & Girls Clubs members.

“We are so excited to partner with Roadtrip Nation to expand our workforce programming and bring career exploration to Boys & Girls Clubs across the nation,” said Jim Clark, president and CEO, Boys & Girls Clubs of America. “As our youth continue to navigate the impact of the pandemic, it’s critical that our clubs have the tools they need to equip young people to be workforce-ready. Thank you to The Coca-Cola Company, Navient, Dell Technologies and Raytheon Technologies for their dedication to our mission. Your support will inspire millions of young people to achieve great futures.”

Developed by Roadtrip Nation, Roadmap to Careers is a digital product to help youth explore careers relevant to their unique interests, empowering them to start taking steps toward those careers. By combining labor market data with Roadtrip Nation’s library of thousands of candid video interviews, Roadmap to Careers shows young people what it’s really like to build a fulfilling livelihood.

Club members can also explore careers through workforce data—from projected growth rates to salary information—but they'll also see the human side of each career through thousands of candid video interviews with the people working in those jobs.
