Indiana’s urban schools are a hub of activity. They offer rich and varied programs and services. For example, career centers are part of almost half of the urban school districts that are participating members of Indiana Urban Schools Association (IUSA). These centers give students a way to explore their talents, experience advanced career and technical education, and prepare these youngsters for future careers and for college. Many of the centers have established partnerships with local colleges and universities that create opportunities for students to earn college credit while they study. Many have relationships with local businesses and industry where students take part in internships to practice their trade while they are learning.
Whether it’s preparing students to be lifelong learners, helping them on the path to college, or exposing them to opportunities for careers, Indiana’s urban schools have a lot to offer their communities. To learn more about the career centers offered by IUSA districts, visit the websites for:
