Project Summary

Critical Choices is a national project to create an online program that will help persons new to the workforce - especially those with low incomes - to identify the kind of career they would like and the essential skills or help they will need for workplace success.

Launched in September 2001, the three-year project is a Learning Anytime, Anywhere Partnership effort that will offer learners the opportunity to work at their own pace as they complete various course modules. But it is also designed for use with the help of a career counselor or facilitator, to ensure that learners receive the support they need to complete the program and succeed.

The Critical Choices curriculum was developed between 2001 and 2004 and went through vigorous testing and evaluation at several pilot locations across the country in 2004. It is now available for use by one-stop career centers, community-based organizations, colleges, employers and other organizations involved in workforce development.
