Michael Berry Career Center is again offering students a chance to sample different career prep programs in a special Summer Career Exploration program.

Dearborn Public School students who will be in sixth through 12th grade in the fall can sign up for the free month-long program.  Students attend Monday through Thursday from June 27 to July 28 and can opt for morning or midday sessions or both!  

In both sessions, students will participate in a short, daily student leadership seminar and rotate through up to five different career programs for one-week, hands-on enrichment and exploration.

Program areas will include health careers, digital media and design, information technology, hospitality and tourism (including culinary arts), business academy and more.

The morning session will run from 8 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. (with optional breakfast at 7:30) and midday sessions will run from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.  Those who opt for both sessions can stay for lunch in between.

Students may earn up to 0.5 credits for each session as long as they meet attendance and other requirements set by the district.  Students are graded as credit/no credit.

Registration for the program has already started.  Students and parents can learn more or register students for Summer Career Exploration on the MBCC website.
