Mission Statement

Schools That Can (STC) reimagines education through real-world learning that closes the opportunities and skills gap. Our vision is a revitalized education to employment pathway in which ALL students we serve are prepared to succeed in a rapidly changing future. We seek to close the opportunity and skills gap by preparing historically marginalized communities for 21st century life, learning, and work.


Schools That Can is a national not-for-profit network of K-12 schools in multiple cities, focused on providing culturally relevant career readiness programming that helps schools meet student needs. We do this through career-readiness programming, and collaborating directly with schools to make this programming accessible to every student. Our mission is for every student to graduate with career skills, relevant credentials, and confidence to pursue fulfilling post-secondary options. Learn more at: www.

At the heart of Schools That Can’s programming are our virtual volunteers, professionals across industries dedicated to volunteering in order to broaden student views of the world of work and their place within it. Whether it’s resume reviews and mock interviews or ongoing support, connecting students directly with a robust national network of volunteers is one of the most groundbreaking elements of STC’s programming. Want to get involved? STC is always looking for volunteers. It’s an engaging, exciting community, and thanks to this work being virtual, you can join us from anywhere in the world.

I had a fantastic time participating in Schools That Can's Career Chat. We were able to engage with high school student in New York and answer a wide variety of questions they had to help their future career endeavors. I learned a lot from the other professionals that attended and was even able to do a bit of networking. I look forward to volunteering with this group again.
