Getting ready for what comes after graduation is a pretty critical task for students, and one that often falls by the wayside in the hectic environment of middle and high school.
That’s why educators in Yuma, with the help of business leaders, are introducing a new “career exploration” program in middle and junior high schools around the area that aims to get kids thinking about what they want to do after getting their diploma.
Dubbed the Middle School Career Exploration Project, it’s spearheaded by the Arizona Business and Education Coalition, or ABEC, a group of educational institutions, businesses, nonprofits and government agencies working together to improve Arizona’s educational system.
