Saturday Career and College program resumes May 8

Pathways To Success
The first Pathways to Success session took place Feb. 27, 2021 at Poughkeepsie High School.

PCSD, in partnership with critical community partners, continues to push the newly established Saturday Morning Lights Career and College Pathways to Success program, which returns to Poughkeepsie High School for six weeks beginning May 8.

The program offers students in grades 7-12 an opportunity to explore careers and gain skills related to life after high school, regardless of whether they choose to pursue college or a career.

Information about internships, college options, creating a resume, and earning trade certificates and college credit will be presented. Students will also hear from successful Poughkeepsie graduates.

The 9 a.m. to noon program includes breakfast and lunch.

Registration forms in English are here and in Spanish here. For more information, email Community Schools Administrator Mario Johnson at mjohnson@poughkeepsieschools.org, Liz O’Raffity at mzoraffity@aol.com or Gully Stanford at gullystan@gmail.com
