High School Migrant Education seniors from across the district participated in the second annual Migrant Out-Of-School Youth Readiness Event on March 9th and 10th.
The group of students was provided with the opportunity to learn about what post-high school options are available to them in the hopes of creating a bridge to career training and other educational opportunities. Students learned about what learning opportunities are available to them through Salinas Adult School, the High School Equivalency Program at Hartnell College, Regional Occupational Programs, Career Training Programs, Monterey Peninsula College, and the Workforce Development Board.
Students also toured the two Salinas Hartnell College campuses to gain a better understanding of the college experience. At the Alisal Hartnell College campus, students were taught about four Career Technical Education (CTE) classes they could enroll in right on campus – Administrative Justice classes, Welding classes, Auto and Diesel classes, and Simulation Lab classes. Professors of each class shared the basics of the courses offered, as well as how they could turn these CTE courses into a career.
Our wonderful students were engaged and excited to see how they could make careers out of subjects of interest. We are thrilled these students had the chance to learn more about what options are available to them!
