General Careers (Middle School)

General Careers Exploring is a unique career exploration program for young men and women in middle school. The program provides students with an opportunity to learn about a wide variety of career fields and network with professionals already working in those fields. You get hands-on experience to determine whether or not a particular career field is right for you. You develop valuable networking contacts with professionals working in your selected career fields, and you get to know other youth with your same interests and aspirations.

Career Club 2021 – sponsored by Austin Community College, available at Austin area middle schools
