NPA Begins Partnership with Connect 2 Careers

In a first-time effort to integrate career preparation for our students as part of our 11-year commitment, four of our Nativity Prep students in high school began an exciting career-exploration opportunity last month (December) that will extend into the spring of 2016. In partnership with Connect 2 Careers, a local nonprofit dedicated to helping low-income students in San Diego, each has been awarded an ‘externship,’ an opportunity to learn on a paid, professional basis with a variety of businesses (for profit and nonprofit alike) in greater San Diego. “This opportunity is a first time event for our students,” remarked Mrs. Xochitl Alvarez, Director of Graduate Support at Nativity Prep. “We hope to expand the program and the opportunity next year so that more and more of our students in high school have the chance to earn money as young professionals now to help pay for college and to learn applicable skills as they continue discerning their own college and career pursuits.”
