This summer, the University of Hawai‘i invited the graduating class from all Hawai‘i’s public high schools to enroll in free college courses through the Next Steps: Career Exploration program. More than 1,500 graduates from the Department of Education class of 2020 enrolled in 129 different courses earning between 1-6 college credits over the summer.
In the Career Exploration classes, high school graduates are exploring their career options and discovering the education and training needed to reach their goals. Meet the instructors of Career Exploration classes.
