Students grades 7-11 and parents are welcome to attend the Chardon High School CREW open house from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Feb. 16 in Room 3, connected to the school library media center, 151 Chardon Ave.
The CREW is Chardon High School’s onsite, one-of-a-kind career-based program advised and taught by faculty members Tracey Britt and Kim Butala, who serve as the program’s co-navigators. This year, the CREW welcomed faculty member Sharon Zdesar to the team.
The program is designed to focus on guiding students as they make plans for their future after high school graduation. Hilltopper students learn and earn, while also meeting state graduation requirements. Through the CREW, students explore all “4Es” career options – employment, enlistment, education and/or entrepreneurship – and experience as much as they can within the workforce.
The program has a new, onsite manufacturing lab that is supported by industry partners. Students learn skills and earn certifications in the lab, preparing them for real-world employment.
CREW co-navigators are working to build mentorships and pre-apprenticeships with local businesses to enable students to learn skills while earning an income. This important connection with community businesses also enables the district to learn about and help address employment gaps experienced by business owners.
