AIU Offers Career Connections Program for High School Students


The Allegheny Intermediate Unit's Career Connections program offers students in grades 9-12 the opportunity to explore a career in programs that consist of one-day to four-day learning experiences.  Students meet and work with professionals who share their experience, expertise, and enthusiasm for what they do for a living. The programs provide a chance for students to make connections with organizations and people who can help them as they pursue their career choices.
