Alignment Peoria Career Awareness Team issues an Invitation to Participate

A child’s imagination works a bit like a computer. Its output is based on the type of input it receives. That’s why Alignment Peoria’s College and Career Readiness Action Team is piloting a K-5 Career Awareness program. It’s designed to give children a rich understanding of career opportunities, and it aims to strengthen connections between school and work. When children understand a career, they can imagine themselves doing it!


The College and Career Awareness K-5 pilot is seeking partners to be career awareness speakers in Peoria Public School classrooms. Peoria Public School children, particularly those in primary grades, need to hear about your experiences and your industry! Your interaction can spark an interest which sets a life plan in motion. The Action Team is specifically seeking partners representing one or more of the following careers:



  • Emergency services
  • Agriculture
  • Business and entrepreneurship
  • Media and communications
  • Health and fitness
  • Natural resources
  • Government
  • Information technology and computer programming
  • Manufacturing
  • Medical
  • Engineering
  • Education and training
