What We Do

At Career EdVantage SWI, our mission is to provide educational and training opportunities for committed students through meaningful relationships and supportive coaching.

Our Goals

One goal of Career EdVantage is to guide students into financially sustaining careers with opportunity for upward mobility while enhancing the regional workforce. A second goal is to infuse the Southwest Iowa workforce. Annually, CEV aims to add 100 job-ready individuals to the Southwest Iowa workforce in high-demand areas such as healthcare, business and communications, science-technology-engineering-math, and industrial technology and transportation.

    CEV has provided a greater door to opportunity. I'm enrolled in the Construction Management program at Iowa Western, and with the support of my CEV coach, I am enjoying it, and doing well in my classes.

Our Impact This Year

CEV serves eight school districts in Southwest Iowa. CEV is currently serving 130 students, but slated to add another 100 in the next year. CEV coaches spend countless hours dedicated to coaching students in personal, professional, and academic development. CEV ensures all our students have opportunities for real-world, hands-on experiences in the career field of their interest. And that is thanks to the incredible businesses that CEV has formed lasting partnerships with.
