The Prospects Adult Career & Education (PACE) Transition Program will assist students in their transition to post-secondary adulthood. PACE program students will research, analyze and answer two questions that they are facing as exiting seniors: 1) Will I either pursue a post-secondary education or will I directly join the workforce? 2) What is my next step? The PACE program will help with understanding what opportunities are available to students, how they would plan a pathway for their career decision and most importantly what steps are required to support their decisions. The program will focus on:
Ø Utilizing Choices Career Software to find careers that match student's likes, values and abilities
Ø Researching different career pathways and what it requires to pursue a particular occupation
Ø Researching the differences between vocational, technical training schools and two/four year college programs
Ø Researching scholarship, grant and loan opportunities for college or vocational training
