Career Exploration Camp registration opens March 18

Parents, if you are looking for a fun way for your incoming seventh, eighth or ninth grade student to spend their summer, the free Career Exploration Camp at the Dan Dipert Career Technical Center is the perfect opportunity.

The Arlington ISD career and technical education department (CTE) has partnered with the guidance and counseling team to introduce students to four-year pathways they can take advantage of once they begin high school. With over 12 discussion topics, students will have the opportunity to learn about career paths that focus on robotics, culinary arts, web design, architecture and much more.

“We are excited to offer these hands-on opportunities for students to experience some of our amazing programs,” said Sara Mahoney, the coordinator for career and technical education. “Our hope is that this experience will help students choose programs that they are interested in and start them on their path to future career success!”

Registration for the Career Exploration Camp opens on March 18 at 5 p.m., and CTE specialists like Earl Harris are excited to for students to register and take part in the camp. He believes it will spark a curiosity in students that will last a lifetime.

“Empowering young minds with hands-on experiences at our CTE career camp for junior high students isn’t just about sparking curiosity; it’s about igniting a passion for learning,” Harris said. “We believe that by providing real-world applications, we’re not just preparing students for the future – we’re sculpting future leaders equipped with 21st-century skills, essential for their post-secondary success.”
