Alternate Spring Break features career exploration for students in 7th-9th grades

FLINT, Michigan — Mott Next, an academic outreach program, will be holding an alternate spring break at multiple locations to introduce young people to job professions and opportunities. 

Students in 7th through 9th grades are invited to participate in the program, which runs 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. March 27-29 at the Mott Community College main campus in Flint, the MCC Workforce Development Wagner Building, or the Southern Lakes Branch Center in Fenton. 

Daily activities will feature workshops related to occupational and physical therapy, team building, law enforcement, physical fitness and the FabLab, a digital fabrication laboratory.

“This Alternate Spring Break experience is a great way for young people to explore what they are interested in on a deeper level than just reading about it or watching a video about it,” said Carla Clark, Academic Outreach Coordinator for Mott Community College. “They will have a chance to experience it first-hand.”

Admission is free and lunch will be provided for all students participating. 

Applications are available online or contact Carla Clark at (810)232-4530 or [email protected]
