Career Launch is a new program at Forest Lake Area High School funded in part with grant dollars awarded by Youth Skills Training @ Depart of Labor and Industry. Forest Lake Area High School, in partnership with Lakes Center for Youth and Families, has created a program to better serve area students and area businesses by providing real world experiential learning opportunities. These opportunities include: Career Day speakers, workplace tours, job shadowing, mentorship, and work based learning.
Students will have the opportunity to access these resources, develop their professional skills, attain industry related credentials, and participate in paid work based learning experiences through the Career Launch A (Explore) and Career Launch B (Experience) courses. Both of these courses will be open to 11th and 12th grade students. For the 2020-21 school year, the career fields of focus will be in agriculture, manufacturing, automotive, construction, and health care, but all students are welcome to enroll in the class.
Students and parents interested in these experiences, or businesses wanting to partner, should contact Mike Miron at firstname.lastname@example.org or 651-982-8510.
