REal Stories from the river Region
“Everything fell into place once I took that initiative to want to better myself and now I know there are endless opportunities.”
“By getting this job, it has allowed me to provide for my family. I recently built a home. I couldn’t have done that without this. I love my job.”
“I often share with my students that myself and my husband went to the technical college in Reserve. There is just so much opportunity there for them.”
“Earlier this year we completed our home. We visit Chicago every year to catch the Cubs. Those are some of the things this job affords me the ability to do.”
“My plans were to do something in the medical field. When I graduated and got my certificate I actually got the job the same month.”
Louisiana high schools recently launched an innovative career and technical education (CTE) program called Jump Start. High school students who choose the Jump Start pathway will earn certifications in high-wage career sectors along with a high school diploma. Local school systems decide which career certifications to offer. Below you can find out more about the CTE programs offered by our River Region high schools.
Louisiana’s Community and Technical Colleges offer career training programs and associate degrees – from industrial technologies to construction and automotive, healthcare and communications to culinary arts, information technology, and business …and much more.
