Career Development Month Comes to SLP

What do you want to do when you grow up? That question gets more and more real for our high school students each day, and it’s one we are actively trying to help them answer.

During November, at Spring Lake Park High School, students will have an opportunity to explore different career paths with several student-focused events planned to help students begin to discover what they are passionate about.

Know a high school student? Encourage them to attend events this month. Check out Career Development events here.
