As a result of the high cost of tuition and the student loan crisis, an increasing number of school professionals and families are rediscovering that there are many ways for a young person to be successful after high school, and that an immediate jump into the commitment of a four year degree is not the only path to take to become part of the workforce. Creating a plan for success requires knowledge about these options.
Our Post-Secondary Pathways (PSP) program allows participants to explore apprenticeships, training programs and certifications for in demand occupations and learn about employers who provide a good salary, benefits and career growth.
Each student is matched with a mentor and meets for group activities which increase participants’ understanding of career options. The goal of this program is to help students identify their interests and skills, research potential career pathways, and leave Brookline High School with a solid plan for success in place.
