The Early Education Career Institute is registered as a Vocational Institute with SC Path and WIOA. We offer a local Career and Technology Center To Art, Career and Technology  Students. We have expanded our opportunities to support the remote technology needs of our local middle school and high school students.

  • Entrepreneur Leadership Goals to Support  STEAM (Science, technology, engineering, arts, math)  based Criteria. Students receive  curriculum requirements to include financial literacy,  financial mathematics, financial markets, and advanced budgeting support. It also adds concentration program management and Home Visitation for students who want to further specialize their ECE career. These are the changes that helped students meet the standard for the STEAM designation.

  • Learners participate in opportunities to showcase their businesses and talents throughout the year.

  • Artists become advocates for their academic needs, business and career related goals early through online platforms such as blogs, YouTube and participate in legislation efforts to expand and discuss art needs. 

  • Program supports artists with display, business, marketing, portfolio building by matching them with mentors from the community. 

It is the overall goal of the institute to bridge the academic and career gaps that prevent a successful transition from school to career for some artist and vocational students. We advocate for the vocational needs of learners and equitable evaluation of learners with different learning needs and academic values.
