Ivy Tech Community College Fort Wayne is hosting the CHOICES (Creating Holistic Opportunities Integrating Career and Educational Success) virtual program for rising 9th and 10th graders from July 13–24. The program objectives include career exploration (exposure to careers the students wouldn’t otherwise consider), student success workshops, career development and college readiness. The camp is targeted toward students who need extra college prep before taking dual credit or dual enrollment classes.
The goal of CHOICES is to help students who need extra attention or motivation to become college ready. CHOICES will help students develop study skills, test taking skills, time management and more. There will be career exploration, where students will learn about career opportunities and get exposed to careers they might not have otherwise considered. CHOICES will also include an academic year component where the participants will benefit from student success workshops and networking opportunities with local industry leaders within high-wage/high-demand career fields.
Project CHOICES supports the northeast Indiana’s Big Goal of increasing postsecondary attainment to more than 60% by 2030 by increasing the number of pre-college students pursuing a pathway toward a certificate, technical certificate or associate degree.
Due to COVID-19 pandemic concerns, the program will be held virtually and is open to anyone in northeast Indiana. Students must have stable internet connection and be committed to participation during the program hours. Some rising 11th graders may be considered on a case-by-case basis.
