High-school-aged students actively participate in workplace awareness activities, a life skills curriculum, and an exposure to a variety of potential postsecondary paths through industry and college tours. With an emphasis on dropout prevention and post-secondary career or college preparation, we provide support and guidance to students no matter the path they are looking to take.
Transition Plan Guides: Working with each student, we create a checklist of activities that guides students from their freshman through their senior year, establishing a path towards postsecondary pursuits that may include college or trade school enrollment, employment in the workplace, or enlistment in the military.
Career & Job Interest Surveys: To best determine a student’s desired goals and career, we utilize a number of measures Self-Directed Search (SDS), Microcomputer Evaluation of Careers and Academics (MECA), Choices Planner, Abilities Profile and Learning Style Inventory.
Life Skills Program: Outside of their academic schedule, students take part in a wide array of real‐ world aptitudes, such as job interviewing and job performance skills, résumé writing, conflict resolution training, workplace communication skills, and hygiene/grooming.
Industry Tours & College Tours: Both on-campus exposure to industry career paths and off-campus visits to tour local industries, businesses, and colleges to increase student interest and stimulate goal planning.
