Schools That Can helps high schools build Career Pathway programs that align to Career & Technical Education (CTE) standards. Our goal is for students to graduate with tangible technical skills, cross-career competencies, and industry experience and certifications that position them to secure and succeed in middle- and high-skill careers, and/or post-secondary education. As part of the Career Pathway Program, students benefit from industry mentors, site visits, guest speakers, and internships. Finally, STC seeks to form partnerships with local colleges and universities to offer college credit options. With these opportunities, students will be poised to obtain living wage positions, providing direct pathways into the middle class, and breaking the cycle of poverty.
