Korean Educators Learn About the VE Approach to Career Readiness

On August 25, 2017, the VEI National Office welcomed fifteen educators from Seoul, South Korea as part of the Empathy SEEDS Tour, a United States study tour for educators to learn more about career readiness programs available to U.S. students.

The visit was organized by the Korea Hana Foundation (also known as the North Korean Refugees Foundation), an independent organization of the Ministry of Unification located in Seoul, South Korea, that works to develop the capacities of those who provide educational services for students who are either North Korean defectors or have parents who are North Korean. These educators have dedicated themselves to this population for an extended period of time in either a private school, social welfare center, shelter, or group home setting.

VEI is an internationally-recognized leader in preparing students for success in college and careers, continually pushing efforts forward to provide students with the best career readiness experience possible. As these efforts continue with the implementation of the Career Readiness Framework throughout the VE experience, we welcome those who are interested in learning how to solve one of the biggest challenges facing education and the economy.

VEI Congratulates College Prep Certified Classes


College and career readiness is a top priority for high schools across the United States. After a thorough review by the New York City Department of Education (DOE), the VEI classes from William Cullen Bryant High School and Business, Computer Applications and Entrepreneurship High School (BCAE) both located in Queens received College Preparatory Course Certification (CPCC). The NYC DOE bestows this certification to recognize high school classes that build college readiness skills.

VEI is extremely proud of these certifications and congratulates Bryant and BCAE on this achievement.
