From Overwhelmed or Slacking to Ethical Hacking: Embedding Cybersecurity in Hats & Ladders' Youth-Centered Career Program


Preparing youth for careers in cybersecurity requires integrating career awareness, motivation, and skill development into formal and informal career education settings. Hats & Ladders, winner of the 2016 Reach Higher Career App Challenge, simplifies this process by providing industry, government, and educators a shared set of tools to connect with youth on their terms, based on their interests, abilities and values, showcase in-demand STEM careers ("Hats"), and engage youth with skill building opportunities and activities ("Ladders") needed to reach their career aspirations. A growing suite of companion educator resources provides opportunities for educators to delve into select career pathways, including cybersecurity, and deepen student learning.
