Partnerships form the backbone of the Career Academy model.  Whether with an industry association, higher education institution, government agency or corporation, partnerships offer a great number of resources to Academy programmes, including critical financial and in-kind support, opportunities for mentoring and internships, increased awareness of viable career paths for Academy students, and the involvement of partner representatives on Career Academy advisory boards.
