Octubre- Mayo:   Working with our national partner, Project Invent, Career Pathways teens will tackle the engineering design process to identify and address a need in their community and work together to create a solution to solve it. This hands-on engineering-based project will take on all the business components of a real-world start-up including opportunities in business, finance, human resources, marketing and communications. The hope is by working with local and national partners, participants will create a product that provides access to recreational activities for youth with special needs.  Our workforce development program will also include career research, resume writing, mock interviews as well as college and career readiness training. Students will also take their learning into their own hands and work independently, with the support and knowledge of our Gold Crown Staff, to gain new technology skills in the areas of their choice

Junio- Agosto: Paid Summer Internship placement for all Career Pathways students in areas including business, hospitality, health sciences & medicine, technology, engineering, marketing, digital media, arts, culture, law, public safety, skilled trades and technical sciences.

Congratulations Career Pathways Class of 2023
