Carson High School students have even more options for their future
RJ Ramirez and Bob Hastings from JOIN Inc. Training Nevadans for Careers presented to Nicole Fagundes's economics class at Carson High School (CHS) on Jan. 18.
JOIN is a 501(c)(3) community benefit organization that provides access to career training throughout 13 counties in northern Nevada. JOIN also provides career assessments, indicating each participant's skills, competencies, and natural abilities related to the workforce.
During JOIN’s presentation, CHS students learned about occupational courses, certifications, career training, and work experience that JOIN offers to young adults (age 17-24). The presentation was an important step towards ensuring students are aware of additional options prior to graduating that can lead to full-time employment in their community.
In addition to their young adult program, JOIN also offers adults career training that results in accreditation, certifications and licensure.
