St. HOPE Public School Hosts Career Fair and College Field Trips 


 Last month, Sac High hosted a Career Fair to connect our high school scholars with representatives from different agencies, businesses, and colleges. Over 100 students participated in the event where they used their Career Fair “Passport” to network with professionals, discover exciting new opportunities, and explore possible careers in a comfortable environment. 

“This was a huge win for our school,” said Director of Student Services Gabe Robert who organized the event. “We were excited that so many students participated and that they found it valuable to learn about different career options.”

Senior Lanai Evans said that at the Career Fair she learned about different job opportunities and programs for nursing, like UC Davis and Sierra College.  Lanai said, “They have programs that go over the summer to build you up and get you ready to go into nursing. I was excited to learn about all of the opportunities, including a program for Prosthetics.” 

This event is an important part of our schools’ focus on exposing scholars to different career fields and industries. Some of the participants included the U.S. Air Force, Sacramento Fire Department, and the UC Davis School of Medicine. 

Our scholars also had an opportunity to tour colleges and learn about university life in person. Some of the schools that our Sac High, PS7 Middle, PS7 Elementary scholars toured were UC Davis, Chico State, Sonoma State, CSU Stanislaus, and Sierra College. We are committed to increasing college access and one of the best ways to do that is to increase exposure to higher learning options.
