Students from all county high schools serve as liaisons between the education world and business community, providing input and ideas, volunteering at program events and building a professional network for the future.
Students tour several local manufacturing facilities and learn first-hand about in-demand, high paying careers in science, engineering, design, robotics, IT, sales, marketing, research and more.
Students grades 6-12 learn up close what careers in the skilled trades look like, with over 30 local contractors providing hands-on interactive presentations and displays highlighting these in-demand careers.
In partnership with Ohio Health Berger, students have the opportunity to explore a broad range of careers in the Health Science pathway, shadow up to three critical roles within the hospital system, and earn two industry recognized credentials towards graduation.
Small groups of educators visit businesses to learn about career pathways and local opportunities, as well as to connect real world of work scenarios to learning in the classroom.
A first-generation college student scholarship, awarded by Pickaway WORKS to one graduating senior at each county high school attending any accredited post-secondary institution, criteria include financial need.
