For the students at Hernandez Middle School, this is a unique opportunity to inspire students and encourage each of them to imagine themselves in meaningful, financially rewarding career options. You can encourage the academic success of a group of young people by welcoming them into your place of business. You can engage and inspire them by providing an experience that can be life-changing.
To date, more than 50 local employers have participated in this program in previous years and more than 1,200 students have visited at least one workplace or college/university.

You will have the option to provide lunch for students or the district will make arrangements for the students to bring a sack lunch with them. HeMS teachers will serve as chaperones for each group.
