Career Day

Various ECCO workshops throughout the year prepare students for college and career, and perhaps the most important are the Career Exploration series. In 2011-2012 we had amazing trips during the fall to two new locations – the 10th graders all visited DreamWorks, and the 11th graders toured UCLA Hammer Museum of Art. Being able to see and hear from the people behind the scenes at a leading film studio and an eclectic art collection really opened eyes to career possibilities unknown to our young people. They researched both sites before the visit and did activities that informed and piqued their curiosity about hidden jobs and transferrable skills.
