The MaineSpark Navigator Network is a dedicated and trained group of education and career specialists who help Mainers connect to their futures.

To reach the MaineSpark goal—60% of Mainers holding credentials of value by 2025—many Mainers will need individualized support to overcome significant barriers. Navigators are professionals from across advising and guidance sectors, and provide encouragement and information Mainers need to connect to their futures. Navigators understand financial, logistic and other challenges, and are able to point Mainers to the right resources for their individual situations.

Navigators advise Mainers on issues including:

  • applications

  • enrollment

  • admissions

  • financial aid

  • scholarships

  • career planning

  • tutoring

  • apprenticeships

  • housing

  • healthcare

  • transportation

  • childcare

MaineSpark “connects the connectors,” supporting the Navigator Network with information and resources through trainings, events, and networking with other Navigators statewide.
