About Us

Career Development Academy, LLC (CDA) provides career education and training to youth and early career talent. Our mission is to help sustain our economy by providing the next generation of workers with essential skills to navigate in the world of work. 

Our future workforce depends on youth having essential skills to thrive and grow. Not investing in youth development has a substantial economic impact. Our career training programs harness youth and early career leadership skills. When we don’t invest in our youth today, it can contribute to costly problems in our economy, such as violence, early school dropout, and high unemployment.
