About Pathways to College and Careers
As leaders in career technical education, we develop programs that support the intellectual and career development of learners. Our goal is to prepare the next generation of leaders and the workforce of the future. Our work centers on the design and testing of authentic and rigorous learning experiences—in and out of school.
As part of this effort, we provide professional development to support these innovative teaching practices. We value education that engages students, builds their knowledge and skills, and enables them to explore multiple career options and make significant contributions to their communities.
Digital / Media / Arts is a collaboration between EDC, The James Irvine Foundation, and ConnectEd: The California Center for College and Career. ConnectEd is dedicated to advancing practice, policy, and research aimed at helping young people prepare for both college and career through linked learning—a high school improvement approach.

About Linked Learning and The James Irvine Foundation
The James Irvine Foundation seeks to transform high school education in California by making Linked Learning available to a majority of low-income youth and across all socioeconomic groups. Linked Learning engages students by connecting learning with student interests and job preparation. Research shows it can lead to higher graduation rates, increased college enrollments, higher earning potential and greater civic engagement. Used in schools throughout California, this integrated approach helps students build a strong foundation for success in college and careers — and life.
