The career portfolio will contain the following documents: a resume, completed employment and college applications, letter of application, thank you for the interview letter, acceptance letter, two reference letters, certificates of achievement, evidence of community activities, and a college essay. Students will also develop an electronic portfolio that will be a collection of work that tells the story of their efforts, progress, and achievements. Guest speakers enhance classroom activities.
