Connect is about career awareness and linking area students with local employers for the purpose of exploring various career possibilities. The program allows students to inquire and learn about various careers and the educational path and/or training necessary to pursue a career(s) of their choice. Students may also have the opportunity to participate in company tours, job shadowing, and even internships.
Connect allows local employers to educate local students about their company or organization, along with the types of jobs they offer. Students will be able to make face-to-face connections with real people in specific careers and ask questions about those careers.
Connect is about students, employers, and careers...with the goal of transforming the future of our students.
