Finding a job is a concern for our young people today. What careers are growing? What skills do I need to make a living and pursue “the American Dream” in our current economy? How can I use the gifts and skills that God has given me and provide for myself and maybe a family?
One way that VLHS assists our students as they prepare for their life beyond high school is career education. We begin freshmen year with a unit on careers and career exploration. Every two years we hold a “Career Day” and invite speakers from a variety of jobs and occupations to present information and background on what they do, how they got there and what the future looks like in their profession. It’s a great way for alumni, parents and friends and supporters of the VLHS community to join together and provide our students with some “real world” learning.
This year our Career Day will be held on Friday, April 13 from 8:00 to 12:00. If you or someone you know would be willing to participate or if you would like to help out in any way that morning, please call Joyce Schrank at 602-230-1600 ex. 114 or send an email to at firstname.lastname@example.org.
