Breaking the cycle of poverty that many continuation students were raised in is a goal involving many strategies. One commonality among all high school students is disengagement with coursework as it becomes increasingly irrelevant to the realities of their lives as young adults. What if you could connect the dots for students by making class fun, relevant and accessible? Learn about an exciting, hands-on Health Science Careers course running successfully in dozens of Continuation Schools throughout California that is UC A-G approved, appealing to kinesthetic, EL and SPED learners, and inclusive of entry-level and certificated careers throughout healthcare. Fitting well into the credit-recovery model, this program boosts engagement and helps build confidence and hope in students as they discover their interests, aptitudes and real world job opportunities.
