The Learning for Life/Exploring team is super excited about kicking off the character education and career exploration program this year. The team is on a mission to ensure that youth of Milwaukee will have a chance to build positive character while setting goals and exploring various career opportunities. We’re extremely excited about the newest addition called Exploring career club program for middle school students. Three Harbors Council was selected to pilot a career club program for some of its students last year. Programs that centered on STEM, Law & Government and General Careers for youth proved to be a great success. Evaluations and testimonials from school administrators, teachers and students indicated the career clubs were impactful and beneficial. The Learning for Life/Exploring Executive committee of the national office voted to make the career club an intricate component of the Exploring program.
There are a variety of opportunities for us to connect with various businesses and schools so that middle school students will have the advantage of building their career path early on.
