Preparing today's youth for a wide range of high-wage, high-skill, in-demand careers.


The landscape of Career and Technical Education has changed in recent years.  More and more students are realizing that there are many satisfying, high-wage careers that don’t necessarily require a 4-year college degree–or getting dirty!  

We help students to realize that a great career is at their fingertips by giving them real-world work based learning experiences.
