ASA Speaker Bureau

Invite an ASA thought leader to speak at, participate in or moderate your next K-12 Career Readiness event or panel discussion.

At American Student Assistance® (ASA), we are changing the way kids learn about careers and prepare for their futures through equitable access to career readiness information and experiences. ASA fulfills this mission by providing free digital experiences directly to millions of students, and through advocacy, philanthropic support for mission-aligned organizations and policies, impact investing, and thought leadership.

Our thought leaders are expert speakers on a variety of career readiness topics, including:

  • Technology tools for career discovery  
  • Middle school career exploration
  • High school work-based learning experiences (e.g. project-based learning, internships, pre-apprenticeships, entrepreneurship education, etc.)
  • Blended high school pathways, including early college and career and technical education
  • Postsecondary pathways including nondegree options (e.g.  apprenticeships, work-based learning programs, career-training programs, bootcamps, certificate programs, industry certifications, and occupation licenses)

To invite a thought leader to speak at your next event, or for more information on our Speakers Bureau, please contact [email protected] or click below (please allow 48 hours for a response).
