CareerONE Hosts Open House
ST. CLOUD -- Students enrolled in CareerONE had a chance to show off their skills Tuesday.
CareerONE is a St. Cloud-based program that trains over 130 students aged 14 to 17 in three different career tracks, as well as life skills needed to successfully find a career.
At an open house Tuesday, CareerONE students and leaders had an opportunity to showcase the program to community leaders and sponsors.
Student Jaydn Agou was surprised at the skills she was able to learn during the program.
Doing all the different stuff, like the health care track, I never really thought I'd be able to be certified in CPR, which is really cool.
Students can focus on one of three career tracks: healthcare, construction and manufacturing, and early childhood education.
In addition, students learn life skills like balancing a checkbook and interviewing for a job.
CareerONE Executive Director Tammy Biery explains the benefits of the program.
You know, it really not only helps them learn how to be a good employee, but it also helps them see what their future could hold by taking exploratory options to figure out what good career pathways would be for themselves.
