Career Planning

Corporate Workplace Program (CWP) was created to enhance the work done at CAS community centers in the area of career readiness. Corporate volunteers conduct a series of on- site workshops for students who have been selected to the program. Topics include leadership and values, interviewing skills, job expectations, networking, corporate culture, and dining etiquette. Selected students are invited to interview for paid summer internships with not-for-profit organizations and in corporate settings such as HBO and Aegis Media.

The Student Opportunity Fair, held in early Spring brings employers including CAS Summer Youth Employment, scholarship opportunities, and academic and enrichment programs to Fannie Lou Hamer students and faculty in order to ensure that FLHFHS students are building their resume and connecting to the world of work and post-secondary education.
