    Are you a junior or senior interested in a career in CONSTRUCTION, or just wanting to learn some new skills in the construction trades?  The Seattle Public Schools Skills Center has an opportunity to start the Construction Trades program midyear for second semester of this year.  If you like to learn by doing, solve structural problems, perform physical-hands on work, and see concrete results, you might be interested in exploring this program for a possible career pathway.  The program runs for three periods daily, and transportation is provides to the site at Rainier Beach.  This can be a pathway into apprenticeship programs after high school, so is a great opportunity for anyone wanting to explore a career in construction.  Come see your counselor or look on the Skills Center webpage (http://skillscenter.seattleschools.org)to apply.

     

    Juniors and seniors – do you have an interest in helping people?  Do you enjoy working with children?  Do you like organizing things and taking the lead?  If so, teaching might be a good career for you, and the SPS Skills Center now has a Teaching Academy for students considering careers in education.  Starting second semester (or next school year), you can spend three periods a day experiencing the field of education and prep to be able to test for a certificate to be able to work in Seattle Public Schools as an instructional assistant after graduation.  Come see you counselor or apply online at http://skillscenter.seattleschools.org.

     

    Calling all students who will identify as first generation college students!  What does this mean?  This means that your parents did not earn a college degree and that you (and any siblings) will be the first in your family to attend college.  Come see your counselor so that we can connect you with resources for navigating the college exploration, selection, and application process.  It is easy to feel lost in the process when you have no one at home who can help with the college process, so check in with your counselor for support and resources now!

     

    Interested in a career in Dentistry? Explore the possibilities at the UW Dive Into Dentistry Day on February 2. The all-day event costs $80, however, you can apply for a scholarship by submitting a 250-word maximum essay on why you want to learn more or pursue a career in dentistry.
