 For High School Students 

             Helping Individuals Pursue Professional Opportunities

Our "Recruit Hippo" program uses a variety of tools to help students understand and prepare for successful employment.

  • Internship for credit: work-based learning opportunities for school credit.

  • Industry tours: career exploration on site with local employers.

  • Soft skills: practicing and improving work ethics, understanding employer expectations, and building critical problem solving skills.
