Career Connections

Career Connections is a partnership with area education agencies and high schools that provides a transitional year to high school students, preparing them to enter the work force and a life of personal responsibility.

Career Connections staff work with students to help them obtain jobs that match their career goals and visions.  Staff work with students in community settings to:

•Participate in job shadows and short-term job tryouts to help students refine their career plans.

•Participate in extended job internships and paid work experiences of 20-40 hours per week that will be included on student’s resume and may lead to a job the student keeps.

•Receive job training and other supports.

Students benefit from the program by:

•More informed career choices through real life experiences

•Development of work skills and experiences that potential employers will value

•Less stressful transition from high school to the adult world

•Greater work hours and wages
