The World of Work initiative is going strong at Cajon Valley Union School District (CVUSD), thousands of students have benefited from the career-based curriculum. CVUSD held their World of Work Week (#CVWOWWeek) November 13th through the 16th where seven San Diego companies connected with the Cajon Valley students to show them their own world of work through virtual Meet a Pro chats broadcasted live to many Cajon Valley classrooms. Not only do students learn about the career options available to them through World of Work, but they also have the chance to learn what careers suit them best and even see behind the scenes of what their future could look like.
With careers in conservation, animal husbandry, and environmental studies in mind, #CVWOWWeek brought students to the wonderful lives of employees at Seaworld and the Park and Rec Department of San Diego County. Kicking off the first day, Seaworld trainers and rescuers gave students a look into their efforts in conserving the ocean and protecting animals inside their park and in the wild. In this Meet a Pro virtual tour, students learned that every one of Seaworld’s thousands of employees makes a difference in Seaworld’s efforts to protect the environment and wildlife as they reach to inspire park goers to volunteer, treat the environment better, and to reduce, reuse, and recycle.
From the ocean to the forest, #CVWOWWeek covered a lot of San Diego ground and headed over to Ranger Kyle’s office: the outdoors. Supervising Ranger Kyle Icke of San Diego Parks and Rec usually comes into Cajon Valley classrooms to teach students about his job, conservation, and wildlife safety, but the Meet a Pro session allowed students to come to him virtually where they saw the beautiful nature that San Diego County has to offer. Ranger Kyle’s enthusiasm and passion for his career is exactly what the World of Work and Cajon Valley Union School District want for each child: a job that is right for that student.
Cajon Valley Union School District has been partnering with the World of Work program for the past two school years, giving over 27,000 students the chance to view the Meet a Pro live chats and virtually tour amazing careers. The World of Work program also gives CVUSD students purpose in their everyday classroom instruction, connecting what they are learning to their futures. Together, World of Work and CVUSD want each student to understand that their unique strengths, interests, and values are needed in the world of work, fulfilling CVUSD’s motto: happy kids, in healthy relationships, on a path to gainful employment.
