NOW participants attend industry tours that provide hands-on experiences in a real work setting, and are often offered paid internships, co-ops and apprenticeships. These students meet every month with industry leaders in small groups and will receive preferential consideration for long-term employment after high school or post-secondary training/education.
To be eligible to participate in the program, students must attend Hamilton Career Center in one of the manufacturing related programs (Welding, Building Construction, PLTW Engineering, Mechatronics, Machine Technology, Automotive Technology or Mechanical/Architectural Design). Applicants must also be in good academic, attendance and discipline standing with the district.
To join this elite group, rising juniors should work with counselors at registration to select Hamilton Career Center courses and the NOW Program. For more information, ask a guidance counselor or call 864-886-4425.
