Helping students make solid decisions about their post-secondary experience
Many students – and their teachers – are unaware of the rich employment opportunities available in Napa County and nearby regions. With major industries like hospitality, healthcare, wineries, construction, and technology in our backyards, students need opportunities to explore their interests and passions, then be exposed to and gain experience in a variety of workplaces.
Knowing what careers are available and what skills are needed can help students decide whether college or professional-technical preparation is right for them after high school. This journey can start as early as kindergarten and continue throughout the 12 years of school.
NapaLearns in partnership with Napa County Office of Education and Workforce Alliance of the North Bay launched new initiatives in 2018-2019 to help students become more informed about career paths, both to inform them about their best choices, as well as helping them decide whether college is right for them; and if so, what majors will be best to pursue in terms of their career goals.
Our partners play an important role in helping us bring career awareness to all students in Napa County.
