Steps to Success
Work-Based Learning Programs
We administer interest inventories to assess students’ interests. Career Assessment results help with accurate class schedules and placements into work-based learning programs (Ex: job observations, co-ops, and internships).
Job Observation Program is placements based on the following: • Attendance improvement • Grade improvement • Class Work Ethic
Internships and Co-ops
We recruit the businesses and pair them up with the student participants. These are year-long work-based opportunities. Our team will assist with on-site visits and ongoing evaluation…

Career Cruise Events are open to high school and college students, parents, educators, and businesses. Attendees are given a tour of the business and hear presentations by employees in each department.

Finding the Shoes That Fits
This is a school-wide event where students meet businesses that are looking for employees, have an opportunity to meet trades school and college representatives, and take part in mock interviewing.
We do the footwork for you! This is a three in one event where students learn about job opportunities through a job fair, meet college and trades school representatives to understand their post-high school options, and a mock Interview room where HR representatives from various companies critique students’ resumes and assist with the interview process.
