Process for Applying for Career Launch Endorsement

Thank you for considering an application for Career Launch endorsement! The Career Launch endorsement application is designed to verify that a program meets the definition of Career Launch. Career Launch programs combine meaningful, high-quality on-the- job experience with classroom learning. These programs include registered apprenticeships, which are automatically endorsed, and Career Launch programs in the K-12, community and technical college, and 4-year systems, which have to go through the Career Launch endorsement review process. We aim to ensure that 60% of young adults beginning in the class of 2030 will participate in a Career Launch program.

The Career Launch endorsement review process is overseen by the State Board of Community and Technical Colleges. For more information on the Career Launch endorsement process or for a PDF copy of the application, please visit SBCTC’s website.
