Area high school students get to journey outside the classroom and try out possible future careers with the help of GO CAPS.
Ann Hopper, the program’s regional coordinator, and some of her students were guest speakers at Thursday’s Lebanon Rotary Club luncheon.
GO CAPS stands for Greater Ozarks Center for Professional Studies. Hopper said their mission is “connecting businesses and education to better prepare students for everything the workforce needs.”
They serve 100 students at Lebanon, Conway and Camdenton schools with the help of 39 business hosts and 62 businesses providing additional support.
Hopper said students get a chance to get real life experiences in fields that interest them. She said some of them may find they have the wrong idea about career options, such as manufacturing.
