Become Career & College Ready

  • Through our community partnerships, there are a wide variety of community opportunities that we recommend that our students get involved in. These opportunities can help students explore careers, participate on college campuses, and earn valuable experience as they prepare for life after high school. Most of these opportunities are free, and many are available for all age groups. Bookmark this page and check back frequently, as we often get new opportunities every week!
