PaCEProfessional and Community Experience

Professional and Community Experience (PaCE) is available at all PSD high schools. PaCE offers an opportunity for any student to step outside the school walls and explore various career options. The community experience allows students to gain on-the-job experience in areas of career interest, and many local businesses realize that students with a broad-based education and hands-on experience are better prepared to enter the workforce.

  • Services: instruction and experiential learning opportunities that can offer job leads and transferable work skills. Includes: internships, paid work experience, mentoring, career tours, pre-apprentice and summer experience.

  • Eligibility: This program is open to all Juniors and Seniors that are interested in building their workplace skills and knowledge.

  • Application: speak with your school guidance counselor to inquire about the course, scheduling and to receive an application.
