Workforce Prep

Workforce Prep is our structured and evidence-based seven-year program. Students are immersed in an experiential curriculum that includes in-class career mentoring, life skills development, goal setting, job readiness training, and career exploration. Students enter the program in tenth grade and receive training, guidance, and support through four years of post-high school continuing education.
