Career Works is an innovative employment and post-secondary preparation program that allows young adults to explore future career options while learning the skills they need to get on the path to success. Through job shadowing, conversations with leading professionals, internships, classroom skills practice and hands-on projects, students will learn professional skills such as communication and networking, resume building, interviewing, and financial literacy, while also earning a stipend* for participation.
Career Works is designed to help students finish high school ready to step into their career of choice through our built-in pathways to Apprenticeships in growing fields such as Information Technology, Healthcare, STEM, and Trades and Construction. Students can earn credits toward their apprenticeship OR credits toward college if college is their desired post-secondary pathway
Find us at our new BGCWPA Career Works Workforce Development Academy on the second floor of the Tube City Center for Business and Innovation
at 409 Walnut St. McKeesport, PA 15132.
