How the TAWS Program Helps Working Students
The TAWS program helps working high school students (seniors) prepare for life after graduation through flexible school schedules and career coaching. Our program is designed to build on a student’s strengths while turbocharging their career path.
The TAWS program was modeled after the University of Maryland Global Campus, which helped design us. Like UMGC, we build students’ academic programs and schedules around their jobs and career goals. For example, our students take high school and college courses in person and online. This flexibility gives them the opportunity to work more hours and earn more money.
In addition, each of our participants work one-on-one with a career coach. Our coaches design Individual Career Plans (ICPs) for every student. These plans work backwards from a students’ ambitions to high school and college courses, apprenticeship options, and job opportunities.
As students complete their plans, they then have the option to join the TranZed Apprenticeship Services Program. Through this program, they are introduced to training in IT, Cyber Security, and Digital Media.
Presently, TAWS only works with Montgomery County Public Schools. Our goal, however, is to expand to other school systems in the future.
