Career treks are career-related field trips organized through my office.  They
are supervised trips which take place during the school day - most are only a
few hours. Due to limited space for these field trips, spots are filled on a first
come, first served basis, with priority given to juniors and seniors. Please stop
by and see me if you have a certain career you are interested in exploring.
For other events outside the school day, internships and camps please click here: 
The Career Trek program is made possible through a partnership/grant funded by
the Northwest Educational Council for Student Success (NECSS) Their mission is to develop programs with partners
(like D220) that inspire postsecondary education and career readiness as a life goal. 
Through this partnership BHS students are invited to attend Career Nights hosted
by other local high schools. These Career Nights are advertised and will show up
on this website.
