ABOUT THE PROGRAM

DESCRIPTION

 

 

The program offers fun, in-school interactive experiences that educate youth on various career and entrepreneurial opportunities by facilitating hands-on workshops that immerse students in a “day in the life of…” culture of the specific discipline.

CHALLENGE

 

 

Less than favorable high school graduation rates in urban areas are negatively affecting individual’s social and economic advancement and well-being. We aim to affect increased graduation rates, resulting in higher education credentials, higher incomes, more stable employment, and fewer societal problems such as incarceration, criminal victimization, reports of ill-health, and early childbearing.

OBJECTIVES

  • Sustain student enrollment

  • Introduce students to varied career and entrepreneurial options

  • Incite interest in higher education

  • Gather data to inform youth school and community programming

STRATEGIES

 

 

  • Institute programming that exposes students to real-life glimpses of various career and entrepreneurial options.

  • Inform teachers of how to enhance individualized planning and incorporate these curriculums into their lesson plans

  • Inform community leaders of areas of interest for developing community youth programming

  • Inform parents of areas of interest for their children and assist with selecting programs that further educate them in these subject matters to develop career readiness skills
