Carl the Career Bear

Carl the Career Bear

Carl allows even our youngest students to experience excitement about future careers. Through his book, videos, and meet and greets, students are able to share in the fun and gain exposure to a variety of jobs.

Carl the Career Bear is available to Elementary schools in the North Central PA region. Together, Carl and our BEP Project Coordinator, facilitate career exploration with your students. Our Project Coordinator will start with a reading of Carl’s storybook, Carl the Career Bear. In this story, we follow Carl through video clips of various career opportunities he has filmed throughout our region. Students can even dress Carl in his work uniforms.
