Each year WorkForce Central, Clover Park Technical College, and Bates Technical College sponsor the Career Exploration Project. The project is designed to give high school students a real Technical College experience. Students select a program of interest; we place them in that program where they now have the opportunity to interact with the instructors and students. These high school students are now able to see themselves in college first hand. After each visit, we sit down to lunch, discuss the enrollment process, financial aid, and other options for education.
