Welcome Dan Hinderliter to Advance CTE!

Hi there, I’m Dan and I’m excited to be the newest policy associate for Advance CTE. I started working with the team at the beginning of June and, since then, have jumped in with both feet to a number of different projects; I’m involved with JPMorgan Chase’s Global Career Readiness Initiative, the updating of The National Career Clusters® Framework, a project on area technical centers supported by the Lumina Foundation, and the tracking of state policy throughout the year. 

I’ve always had a passion for education, working at summer camps as a teenager. Pursuing this passion professionally, I earned my undergraduate degrees in middle grades education and communication studies from West Chester University of Pennsylvania. After receiving my teaching certificates, I moved to rural Appalachian Ohio, where I ran academic enrichment programs and facilitated federal grants for a local school district. A large part of this job was working with students on a different career path than my own and exposing them to the wide variety of career and technical opportunities that they could benefit from. I decided to support these students from a different level, moving to DC to pursue my masters in education policy from The George Washington University. For the last few years, I’ve been working with undergraduate students doing career and workforce advising work. I’m excited to continue this path toward helping learners of all levels find fulfilling careers and growth opportunities through my work with Advance CTE!

Outside of work, I am passionate about local and community politics. I also enjoy games and puzzles of all kinds, live music, the outdoors, and cheering on my beloved Philadelphia Eagles. Let’s go Birds!

Dan Hinderliter, Policy Associate
