LANE COUNTY, Ore. – Just because we’re in a health and economic crisis doesn’t mean career planning needs to take a break.

In fact, experts say it’s more important than ever.

Connected Lane County has a program called Elevate. It’s aimed at seniors who are graduating this year, but all high school students are welcome.

Every day of the week, there is a different focus to help you take the next step after school: Mentor Mondays, Virtual Tour Tuesdays, Working Wednesdays, Think-About-It Thursdays, and Feel Good Fridays.

The best part? It’s pandemic proof.

“When the pandemic happened, we had to make a shift in our spring programming, so what we’ve done is created some virtual experiences for students where they can still connect with industry, they can learn from mentors, but they can do so while they are staying home, staying healthy," said Heidi Larwick with Connected Lane County.
