Schools, businesses partner for career coaching

FLORENCE, Ky. (AP) - An education panel in northern Kentucky is partnering with area businesses in an effort to provide career coaching to select high school students in the fall.

The Kentucky Enquirer reports Northern Kentucky Education Council is overseeing the program with support from Toyota, Duke Energy, Citi, the Bank of Kentucky and Heritage Bank.

The initiative will provide one-on-one career coaching to 33 students at 14 high schools across the region. Coaches will help students identify strengths and weakness in an effort to narrow career options and choose the right classes.

Students will also be mentored by professionals from top employers in the region.

The newspaper reports creators of the NaviGo Scholars program will help students advance and strengthen the region's workforce.
