Despite a steady increase in high school graduation rates over the last decade, fewer students are choosing to enroll in postsecondary education than in years past. The decline in enrollment could be attributed to the allure of the workforce in a growing economy, an inability to pay college tuition, or perhaps students are not fully prepared to envision a study concentration and ultimately choose a career path. Generation Schools Network (GSN) recognizes that college is not the right step for every student. For the 30.8% of high school graduates not enrolled in college, exposure to education career pathways such as protective services and military careers and could be the answer needed.
Along with the true meaning of service and pride gained through patriotism, the military provides technical training that can be used for a variety of career fields. Tuition assistance is also available for military members to attend and graduate college; other benefits include health coverage for the member and their immediate family, along with many opportunities for salary increases and bonuses.
As part of the College and Career Services at Generation Schools Network, MAPS Exploration Workshop is a one-day event in which students and their families explore all military and protective services careers.
The purpose of the Workshop is to encourage students and parents to consider military & protective services as an achievable pathway to pursue after high school. This event will provide opportunities for them to directly communicate with members of each branch of the military through multiple interactive sessions. The Workshop will also lay out pathways for enlistment that outline how students can begin building their careers.
