Careers in Education
The Careers in Education program provides high school students with the opportunity to work with learners in the community under the direction of teaching professionals while experiencing the field of teaching. It teaches students skills useful for careers as educators as well as community leaders. This program brings together many segments of the community including students of various levels and teachers, as well as other professionals involved in education. The Professions in Education program operates Kid’s World Preschool in which the students work directly with children ages three to five years old in a laboratory setting. Students learn age appropriate activities and behaviors for preschool age children. Students can also be placed on work-based learning to utilize these skills learned. Students earn certification in CPR, First Aid, and AED; they can receive their Child Development Associate (CDA), a widely known credential; and have the opportunity to receive articulated credits from local colleges and universities giving them a head start on their college success.
