Lake Placid, NY — A new report will provide graduating seniors and local youth in the Adirondack region with a valuable resource for future employment and career planning. The “Most Promising Jobs of the Adirondack North Country” report was developed in collaboration with the New York State Department of Labor and is designed to empower youth, families, educators and career seekers with insights into the employment landscape of the Adirondacks.

“As the school year draws to a close and we celebrate our graduating seniors, Adirondack Foundation is proud to release this timely resource that provides invaluable insights into the career opportunities available in our region, helping young people make informed decisions as they embark on their education and career paths,” said Cali Brooks, president and CEO of Adirondack Foundation.

“As a community foundation, one of our priority areas is educational pathways,” said Jennifer Russell, the foundation’s vice president of grants and programs. “The Foundation champions initiatives to bridge the gap between education and employment, ensuring all learners have opportunities to pursue meaningful and fulfilling livelihoods. By releasing this report, we aim to support young people in navigating their transition from high school to the workforce, providing them with the tools they need to succeed in a rapidly changing economic landscape.”

The Most Promising Jobs report covers the North Country labor market, which includes Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Hamilton, Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence counties. It details jobs with the most openings in the next 10 years that are above the median wage, the educational pathways that lead to them and expected incomes, making the data accessible to people of all ages across the region.
