The applications for spring Career Exploration Programs through YCAL are now available! 

The York County Alliance for Learning has just opened registration for 14 in-person career exploration programs occurring this spring.  These programs are extremely helpful for students to get an understanding of different career fields, learn about the training and schooling necessary for a variety of careers, and connect with professionals working in that industry. These visits can also be used to satisfy graduation project field experiences; students should pick up a form in the counseling office prior to attending if they want to verify attendance for graduation project. Click https://bit.ly/3u2U8eS for a list of the spring programs offered and to register.  Many programs fill fast, so early registration is recommended.  More information on each program can be found at https://ycal.us/students/mentoring-program/.

Field Experience Reminder

Attention Juniors!  You are required to complete two field experiences your junior year to satisfy graduation project requirements.  These field experiences can consist of a college or trade school visit (either in person or virtual), a job shadow, attendance at a career speaker, attendance at the college and career fair (happening March 10th), or a part-time job.  Once you have completed the experience, you will need to write a reflection (found here) and upload it into Naviance.  Both field experiences need to be completed and uploaded by March 16, 2022. There can be up to five days of excused absences for college visits/job shadowing.  

The Student Assistance Program (SAP) is continuing to offer services and assistance to students and their families. There are a variety of interventions and programs available, including counseling assessments through True North, school-based counseling through Pennsylvania Comprehensive Behavioral Health (PCBH), and monitoring and mentoring programs through the school. If you are interested in any of these services, please contact your child's school counselor.
