Jump Start Program

Career Education


 

 

Jump Start is a new program for school districts, colleges, and businesses to collaborate in providing career courses and workplace experiences to high school students, certifying them for the career fields most likely to lead to high-wage jobs.

Jump Start will be an elective path for students pursuing a university-preparatory diploma, and a required path for students pursuing a Career Diploma.

Jump Start will ensure students access to state-of-the-art facilities, equipment, and professionals to prepare during their high school schedules for careers in Louisiana’s high-growth job sectors.  Regional Jump Start teams will identify career opportunities important specifically to each region of the state, for which students may earn industry credentials. By offering credentials that give graduates an advantage in Louisiana’s economy of today and tomorrow, Jump Start will prepare our high school graduates for a productive adulthood.
