gives students early exposure to thousands of career options as they learn more about their own passions and interests. We take those interests and nurture them. With access to hundreds of exploration opportunities, students visit work sites in a field they want to know more about and talk to professionals.
Students take the skills learned in the classroom through the CareerConnect Work-Based Learning Program and apply them on the job through shadowing with the CareerXplore Program, one on one mentoring with a partner industry through CareerCoach, working within paid internships through the CareerLaunch program and participating in CareerApprenticeship opportunities.
Our goal is to help students identify their passions, explore what they love doing and make a career out of it through intentional planning. CareerConnect is a transformative approach to preparing students to be successful in college and their future career, and it’s another way DPS is reimagining the high school experience.
