America's Career Resource Network
America's Career Resource Network (ACRN) consists of state and federal organizations that provide information, resources and training on career and education exploration. The network's national activities are funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education. The grant funded ACRN activities in every state and territory until the passage of Perkins IV.
ACRN is focused on helping students and adults make the best possible decisions about education, training and career development. ACRN helps learners identify their skills and interests, and plan an education and training pathway that makes the most of their natural abilities and leads directly to fulfilling work.
For teachers and counselors, ACRN provides guides and curricula that help them incorporate career development into a high-quality academic program. For students, ACRN emphasizes the connection between academic work and future career options, helping learners of all ages to focus on achievement.
