Covenant Career Accelerator Program

Covenant Career Accelerator Program

Piloted during the 2021-2022 and 2022-2023 academic years, the Covenant Career Accelerator Program is a project of the Connecting Carolina’s Covenant Scholars initiative. The program is specially designed to propel Covenant Scholars toward career readiness by increasing their confidence and experience in all eight competencies most valued by employers. Bolstered by a network of collaboration and support, participants are better situated to successfully identify, apply for, and secure post-graduate opportunities in a competitive market.
