Each piece for a bright future!

  • DMACC's Career Discovery Network is a program open to all students and educators in Region 11 and funded by a grant through the Iowa Legislature.  It is designed to link education and business by providing students with opportunities to explore various career options through Work-Based Learning Activities that enhance the career exploration process.
  • Students are exposed to various careers and opportunities to shape their future.
  • Businesses have the opportunity to connect to the future workforce, which supports economic development and new business growth.
  • Educators learn about career options that exist for their students and what skills are needed for the future workforce.

Our Goals

  • Expand the knowledge and excitement of students about potential career opportunities through hands-on experiences while still in high school.
  • Connect local business and industry with students and teachers.
  • Keep students engaged in school.
  • Allow students to see and experience opportunities in the local job market to hopefully keep our best and brightest here, in Iowa.
