An after school club expanding career horizons is giving students a head start of the life skills for success.
Teaching career resources at Gulf Coast Middle School wasnt enough for Van Hoda. He wanted to expand his subject, resulting in an after school club, Career Associations.
“Career Associations helps prepare students for the outside world,” said club member Alice Barlow, 14.
Alice explained that among the things that club members learn, Robert’s Rules of Order and ways to write a resume are just two of the essential skills covered.
But there is more to the club than just studying andplanning for careers.
“We help raise money for philanthropy,” Hoda said. “And we eat a lot of cupcakes.”
The club raises money for different causes, including the SPCA.
