STEAM Career Tracks is an invite-only 16 week program which gives high school students the opportunity to refine hard and soft skills in preparation for careers in science, technology, engineering and math related fields. The program consists of virtual professional development classes from September through December to build the confidence and tools to apply for internships, jobs or college training programs. Additionally, several weekend career exploration workshops will be offered by STEM professionals to explore a wide variety of careers and roles.
STEAM Career Tracks is designed to foster skills of communication, collaboration and critical-thinking, in addition to focused work on developing resumes/cover letters, interviewing skills, confidence, and a sense of belonging in the STEAM & STEM spaces. STEAM Career Tracks connects participants to STEM professionals through hands-on workshops, industry & lab tours, professional development, and networking opportunities. Importantly, STEAM Career Tracks connects students who have the same passions and interests, and creates a supportive environment for skill building and career exploration.
Importantly, students will be asked to submit final deliverables upon completion of the program to showcase their learning in the areas of professional and personal development.
Upon completion of the program and submission of deliverables, participants will receive a $500 stipend.
Professional Development Classes held every other Thursday, beginning on September 8th, 6 - 7:30 pm
Workshops held on scheduled Saturdays from 10am - noon. Students will receive information about the workshops they registered for in the days leading up to their workshop.
