Greater Twin Cities United Way partners with District 191 to provide career experiences for students

Thanks to a grant from The Greater Twin Cities United Way (GTCUW) totaling $25,000, a pilot group of 15 Burnsville High School students were able to participate and earn money in a four-week Summer Internship and Sustainability program.

This partnership with GTCUW provides students with relevant work exposure and experiences, a core tenet of the District 191 Pathways model at the high school level.

Legacy Career Club helps students explore career pathways

Legacy Career Club is a new, exciting after-school activity that will be offered at Burnsville High School on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:45-4:15 p.m. This club aims to teach students about the different pathways that are available to them.

Students in grades 11 and 12 are eligible to participate and will have the opportunity to meet with professionals from local businesses, including Thomson Reuters, Xcel Energy and more! Students will engage in hands-on activities while developing a variety of skills necessary for the workplace.
