Career Pathways Highlights

The countdown is on! The WBL Career Pathways Expo is on November 13 and is open to the public from 3:00 to 5:00 PM. 50 Employers, 20 Nonprofit Organizations, and the Transition Resource Fair are so excited to see you! See you at WBLAHS - South Campus (3551 McKnight Road N.

How is October over? WBL Career Pathways is having so much fun this year and we have already experienced tons of great opportunities! On October 4, over 60 Manufacturing Career Pathway students in grades 9-12 participated in National Manufacturing Day. Thank you to Teamvantage, Trane, Wilbert Plastic Services, and Wilson Tool International for the exceptional day!



Then on October 24, over 70 Healthcare Career Pathway students participated in the 2nd annual Health & Human Services Expo at Century College. Thank you to the White Bear Area Chamber of Commerce and their Business Education Network for such a fantastic event. It was so great to chat with students about how helpful it was to narrow down their post-secondary plans, get some new ideas, and even apply for college!
