Pendleton School to Careers Program
The first year of the Pendleton School to Careers Program was a great success and exceeded all expectations.
In May of 2016, the district entered into a contract with Susan Bower of Eastern Oregon Business Source to build the School to Career program and hire its first coordinator, Christina van der Kamp. Part of the Oregon Department of Education Career and Technical Education Grant was used to fund this work. Blue Mountain Community College and Umatilla County provided additional funding to pay for the project management for this innovative public private model.

Grant Tips:
- Who you know is a powerful tool. Double check with your board members, they may know one or two of the trustees of foundations. A personal connection can help put your application at the top of the pile.

- Some funders can be incredibly particular about the format of reports. Double check with the funder so that you know what the requirements are. In general they will have their reasons for wanting the reports a certain way.
