Dear Parents and Caregivers,
This school year, your middle school child or children are part of a career preparation program at their school. Most of the program takes place during regular school hours but through remote learning with career-focused hands-on activities, virtual visits from career mentors, along with virtual field trips to colleges and job sites. We also offer career-focused activities afterschool for the whole family.
Our goal is to get middle schoolers “high school ready” and to make sure high schoolers are ready for careers and post-secondary training, like college. You as parents and caregivers are part of our success model. We ask you to partner with us as career coaches and mentors for your children. What is a “career coach” or “mentor”? It is an adult who is willing to provide support, knowledge, and time to aid in their student’s development and future success. We will provide you with information, resources and activities to inspire your child. We also hope these experiences in our program will foster a dialogue between you and your child about their future hopes and dreams and how to reach them.
Please complete the form to grant us permission to work with your child’s teacher to deliver programming. All student and parent information is private. We will have graded assignments and take attendance to measure student progress.
