Havana High School Career Link Tour

The Career Exploration Class at Havana High School toured Excel on April 4. This class is part of the Career Link program, which is funded by a grant from the federal Workforce Initiative and Innovation Act (WIOA). The objective is to offer high school juniors and seniors one hour of classroom credit that will help them to: graduate; obtain post-secondary education/employment; and map a career path.

The Career Link program/class gives students a unique opportunity to learn skills necessary for success in the workplace while they are learning other valuable life skills, such as effective communication, leadership, decision making, budgeting, team work and independent and objective thinking. Students who do not have summer jobs will be placed into employment in local businesses and paid by Career Link. Many students will qualify for post-secondary education or training funded by the United Workforce Development Board through the WIOA.

Debbie Yetter, Career Exploration Educator, commented, “Steve Stewart always gives an excellent presentation on workplace skills and employer expectations. Many of my students will not attend a 4-year university but instead choose certificate/diploma careers. We have always enjoyed coming to Excel.”

This tour was also covered in the Peoria Journal Star.
