With the school closures caused by the COVID-19/coronavirus pandemic, school counselors, teachers, parents, and students are looking for online resources. But they’re also looking for ways to stay inspired – and to feel a sense of optimism – about the future. For a limited time, Kuder is offering access to its career development systems for students in grades pre-K to 12, as well as a 10-hour professional development course for career advisors, free of charge.
