A Message from Student Services
BHS New Career TREKS Website
Does your child know what career is right for him or her?? Do they have a plan??
If not, have them join us on a Career TREK! What is a Career TREK? Career TREKS are “career field-trips,” which connect students with employers in the employer’s real-world work setting! Students receive a “behind the scenes” look at organizations and the variety of careers that exist within them! These supervised, virtual events, help students learn from, interact with, and question professionals in job settings related to possible career fields.
Please visit the new Career Treks Website where you will find the following:
First Semester Virtual Career Treks- Live & On Demand events including the ability to sign up
Independent Career Exploration Opportunities/Information- Independent opportunities, career exploration tools and program/apprenticeship information
Semester 2 Career Treks- Live & On Demand events
