College & Beyond and Apprenticeship Excellence Programs
DREAM. ACT. ACHIEVE.
The College & Beyond and Apprenticeship Excellence Programs are part of the ACHIEVE Program that works with the Latinx community in middle and high schools. ACHIEVE is a social-emotional program in various Washington State districts.
Latinx students prepare for their future by introducing them to their career path options which include going to college, university, committing to a vocation, choosing an apprenticeship, joining a Military branch, or entering the workforce right out of school. Currently programs are serving over 100 students. Each student receives one to one coaching and individualized career plans from the ACHIEVE dual language instructors and students receive leadership, communication, and apprenticeship referrals.
