Sassy has been trained to help students explore career paths in specific to Oregon.

“[Sassy] was everything I hoped that it would be! Kids were super, super excited about how specific the results were. They started asking all sorts of great questions about different training options, how to get certified and what sort of salary ranges they could expect. It was really, really fun to see them get so excited about that process!”

– Zach Knapp at Vale Middle School, OR.
