3/10/17 Grand Opening of Dean’s Career Center

The Holyoke Public Schools has engaged in a partnership with Career Point to establish a career center at Dean Technical High School.   The focus of the center is to provide career and job services to students, to help make connections for students between their academics and their future career options.  Its establishment aligns really well with the career aspect of the high school redesign process.

We invite the public to attend the grand opening of Dean Technical High School’s Career Center and look forward to seeing you there.

Please contact Dean Technical High School Career Center Coordinator Xandria Sotomayor from CareerPoint at xsotomayor@careerpointma.org, (413) 800-2843 should you have questions about the Career Center or this event.
