Our mission is to give students a head start on their career goals and college aspirations.

  • Learning career and employment skills, like getting and preparing for interviews, collaborating with others, and communicating effectively with many types of people
  • Graduating from high school with much more than a diploma
  • Job-shadowing, internships, and other workplace experiences
  • Pursuing a job, a college degree, or both upon graduation
  • Entering college with college credits already earned
