High School, High Tech

September 9th, 2009 by flanews

Hundreds of disabled kids around the state are getting career counseling and experience through the High School, High Tech Training Program.

The program kicked off its yearly training conference today in Tallahassee. 15-hundred students around the state are receiving internships, mentoring, and job shadowing opportunities through the program. Spokeswoman Cat Keen says no one should be denied an opportunity to work.

We believe when a person wants to work they should be able to and the program is a career preparation program for young people to be connected to life after high school. Why its important because without programs like High School, High tech some of these high risk youth dont have those opportunities, said Keen.

Students who graduate from the program are three times more likely to go to college or vocational school than others students with disabilities. For more information on the program go to http://www.abletrust.org/hsht
