BATON ROUGE, La. -- Career Compass of Louisiana, a non-profit organization that provides career and college coaching services to high school seniors across the state, has expanded to include school districts in the Central Louisiana parishes of Allen, Avoyelles, Grant, Catahoula, Concordia, Franklin, LaSalle, Natchitoches, Rapides, Winn, Sabine and Red River. 

Along with school districts in the northern and southern parts of Louisiana, Career Compass is now serving students in 28 districts statewide. In the 2012-13 school year alone, Career Compass will serve approximately 12,500 seniors statewide. 

"The Orchard Foundation is very excited to partner with Career Compass, marking their expansion into the central Louisiana region. Through funding from The Rapides Foundation and the Central Louisiana Technical Community College, all public high schools in our nine parish service region will receive Career Compass' college and career coaching services. Our goal is to provide all central Louisiana high school students with the resources and support systems they need to advance beyond high school, realize their full potential, and become productive citizens. Through Career Compass, we can reach that goal," stated Dr. Marjorie A. Taylor, executive director of The Orchard Foundation.
