The Career Center has a variety of student clubs and activities to help students get to know each other throughout the school, develop leadership skills, and provide opportunities for community service projects. Check out some of these opportunities below, and be sure to talk to your instructors about how you can get involved.
Student Leadership Council (SLC)
Elected representatives from each career and technical program plan student activities for Career Center students, such as spirit dress days, picnics, special programs, and community service projects.
Drug Free Clubs of America
Students can voluntarily join Drug Free Clubs of America between September and December each school year. Students are drug-tested at school, then sent a membership card if they qualify for the club. They may also be tested randomly throughout the school year to keep their membership. Members get special rewards both at school and at local businesses in the community. Next year, students who are members will qualify for job placement a semester earlier than other students.
Key Club is a service club for high school students sponsored by the Kiwanis. Its core values are leadership, character building, caring and inclusiveness. Its motto is "Caring--Our Way of Life."
The WCSCC has its own prom. Students can join the prom committee where they will help plan, prepare and coordinate the event.
National Honor Society (NHS)
Career Center students can apply for membership in the Career Center Marie Chenevey Chapter of the National Honor Society. They have an induction ceremony in the spring, and receive pins, gold cords to wear at graduation, and membership certificates. Members of NHS participate in community service projects throughout the year.
Career-Tech Student Organizations (CTSOs)
Career Center students have memberships in the following career-technical student organizations (CTSOs): Business Professionals of America (BPA), Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA), FFA, Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA), and SkillsUSA. Membership in a CTSO is determined by the student's career-technical progam. Students participating in these organizations will have the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and skills through regional, state, and national competitions. They also gain leadership skills and complete community service projects.
Students can be nominated to become a Career Center Student Ambassador. Student Ambassadors share information about their experiences while representing the Career Center and their career-technical program at district and community events, and associate school district activities.
Diversity Club is open to all Career Center students. Its purpose is to create a common bond, understanding and respect among all cultures, ethnic groups and non-traditional students.
