The Career Access Team in Highline dedicates itself to providing high school students equitable access to high-level career connected learning opportunities so they can make informed decisions and graduate empowered and prepared to choose their futures.
We believe students succeed academically when they can see the relevancy of their coursework through engaging, meaningful career activities and can apply it to their future career interests. We ensure students gain exposure to a wide range of strong wage, high demand career fields that require some level of postsecondary educational training, whether it is Technical, 2-Year or 4-year college and beyond (T-2-4), as it reveals the numerous pathways available to them.
The Career Access Team collaborates with hundreds of career partners, district staff, College and Career Access Specialists, staff members in schools, and community organizations to develop robust, real-world career connected learning opportunities. Experiences include Career Exploration Tours, internships, career fairs, guest speakers, job shadows and informational interviews, as well as specialized financial literacy, women in STEM and networking events.
