Congratulations to Our 2013 College Freshman Class!!
College and Career Pathways would like to take a moment to congratulate our graduating class of 2013 as they begin the new school year as college freshmen! One hundred percent of our 2013 seniors graduated on time and will be moving on to a postsecondary program during the 2013-14 school year at the institutions below:
College and Career Pathways Students Visit the FBI, NASA, and a Clark Construction Job Site to Learn About a Variety of Career Fields
During the second semester of the 2012-2013 school year, CCP students participated in a number of Career Connections job shadowing experiences that gave them exposure to a wide variety of career fields and industries. First, the students visited the FBI’s Baltimore Field Office, where they learned about the vast array of roles that agency employees play within the organization, and spoke to both field agents and administrative staff. A number of the students left the field trip with a strong desire to obtain a position with the bureau after graduation.
The students then visited the NASA to learn about careers in engineering, aeronautics, and space exploration. The students spoke with several engineers and administrative staff, and had the opportunity to tour the grounds at NASA Goddard and view the agency staff hard at work on the James Webb Space Telescope.
Lastly, CCP took a group of students in grades 9-12 on our annual visit to Clark Construction’s job site of the future Smithsonian Museum of African American History and Culture. The students were able to see the progress the construction crew had made at the site in the last year, and learned new information about the many different professions involved in the construction process; including architects, engineers, construction and project managers, and financial analysts.
We are truly grateful to all of our community partners at each of these organizations who made these trips possible. This school year, we hope to significantly increase the number of career-related field trips that we offer our students, so that they have the opportunity to learn about an even wider array of career fields. If you are interested in hosting a Career Connections job shadowing experience, or if you are open to speaking to our students at the CCP program site about your field, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
