October Career Awareness Update

What Did We Do Last Month?

YouScience is Up and Running!

The goal of YouScience is to help students uncover and understand their natural abilities and find the career paths that will best use those talents. All sixteen of our member schools are currently using YouScience in some way. I have observed many "light bulb" moments with students when they realize how awesome this tool is for their success.
