Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk opens ‘Career Cafe’ to help kids research jobs
Local manufacturers and the Bethlehem Chamber of Commerce were among the first to see the new Career Café at Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School.
The school recently added a café to the high school library that has maker space and computers for students to research careers.
Teaching staff is available two periods a day to help students as they explore careers and work on resumes.
The Career Café also has space for local businesses to meet with students.
Two local manufacturers, Owens Corning and SABIC will be setting up there, so students can learn about careers at these local facilities.
Both facilities actively hire with entry wages starting at $24 an hour with benefits.
Superintendent of Schools Brian Bailey said career development is a priority.
