Elementary Students Participate in “Design Your Future” Fair
On Friday, May 24, third- and fourth-grade students were given the opportunity to learn more about the 11 career pathways that are a part of Milton Hershey School’s Career and Technical Education (CTE) program during the “Design Your Future” fair.
“We’re in elementary school, but we’re seeing different pathways, which is exciting because I can have experience before I grow up,” said Kasha Brown an MHS third-grader.
High school students, representing each career pathway, modeled skills commonly used in different career fields. The elementary students got to take part in engaging hands-on activities and watch demonstrations.
“By showing younger students what each career pathway consists of, we are helping them to get an idea of what they want to be when they are older,” said Alina Lopareva, a junior in the Law, Public Safety, and Security career pathway.
Next year, the “Design Your Future” career and technical education fair will host 12 career pathways as the CTE program prepares to launch a new pathway—Education and Human Services.
