Mr. Rob Callahan, our Career Development and Occupational Studies Coordinator presented Walt Whitman High School’s “Career Pathways Business Program” to representatives from over thirty local businesses in the Walt Whitman High School Library.

The purpose of the advisory council is to provide input regarding the development of engaging, relevant Business-related coursework, as well as to provide our students with work-based learning experiences in order to prepare our students as they learn to become the workforce of the future.

“The Career Pathways Business Program is a student-centered stackable credential program designed to prepare our students with Job Readiness skills,” said Callahan. Students participating in the Career Pathways Program at Walt Whitman High School will develop transferable skills they will need to transition from high school to the next level in their Career Pathway, whether it is the workplace, community college, vocational school, or a four-year college program. The value of proficiency on common, frequently-required skills is increasing. “By training our students to communicate, solve problems, and present their ideas, we will be developing a well-rounded student whose skills will be in demand in the workplace now and beyond 2020.  This is Job Readiness
