The School to Career program offered by the Blackstone Valley Chamber of Commerce Education Foundation is a wonderful opportunity for students to identify areas of vocational or career interest. This School to Career program is available for students from special needs to Valedictorian. Students learn at different levels and with different stimuli. This could awaken or identify a possible career focus or secure a more stable and familiar transition for a student. 

This program is available to all high school students, but a specific plan must be prepared and accepted by the High School. Hundreds of students from the eleven Blackstone Valley communities utilize this program.
