Education and Career Action Plans (ECAP)

Feb. 17, 2022, 4 p.m.

There are more ways to use the Possible Futures Career Exploration Curriculum -- The Lenses on the Future Unit guides students in middle school through the process of creating an Education and Career Action Plan (ECAP). The 12 lessons, in combination with the Arizona-specific career research tool, My Future Az, engage students in the exploration, reflection, and documentation elements of their individual ECAPs. 

In middle school, students develop a greater capacity to think about and plan for their future. Students, who have opportunities to practice self-reflection, create positive self-labels, identify their individual skills, interests, and then apply that knowledge to create their ECAP, are better prepared to transition to high school, post-secondary training, and the workplace.

Check out the Arizona Department of Education's Get Started Guide for the Middle School ECAP & My Future Az. 

To learn more about Education and Career Action Plans (ECAP), My Future Az, or the Possible Futures Curriculum, schedule a Zoom demo or an in-person training with Maya Watts [maya.watts@arizonafuture.org].
