CareerConnect Round Up – April 5, 2017
Before spring break, almost 50 GWHS CareerConnect students participated in a Skills Training Conference over the course of two days. The goal of the conference was to introduce and fine tune students’ understanding of the professional workplace environment as they prepare to interview for their summer CareerLaunch Internships. Our Business and MedConnect students engaged with the content, and are ready to use the skills they’ve learned to perform at a high level. Interviews with partner companies take place later this month, and we expect all students to be matched with an internship for the summer.
In other exciting news, GWHS BusinessConnect has been selected for the second straight year as the candidate school for the Mayor’s Operation Perfect Beginnings Summer Program. This unique opportunity pairs entrepreneurial-minded 9th grade students with some of Denver’s leading business leaders to be mentored and guided in creating a business proposal. What makes this program so incredible is that candidates will be placed with industries they are passionate about. Last year’s participants were interested in fashion and graphic design. I can’t wait to see where our students’ passion leads them this year!
