Today, we would like to highlight one of our youth programs, High School High Tech (HSHT). Although the HSHT Program continued to be challenged this past school year because of COVID-19, we still provided services, both virtually and safely in person, to all of our students, and had 43 of them participate in at least 30 hours of a career experience that included either paid employment, summer internship experiences, volunteering and job shadowing!
One of our HSHT students, Ethan, had a wonderful internship experience this past summer at Canopy Oak Trails in Archer, FL., where he took care of the horses and assisted with several hands-on farming tasks. Special thanks to Susan and her team at Canopy Oak Trails for being an amazing partner and providing this mentoring opportunity for Ethan! Check out the pictures of Ethan’s experiences at the farm below!
