The Capital Area College Access Network (CapCAN) hosted the 5 th Annual Launch Your Dream Career-Focused College Fair on Friday, February 8 at Lansing Community College West Campus. Students from Eaton RESA high schools attended to learn more about how post-secondary education connects to their career goals. 

Participants at Launch Your Dream gained skills and knowledge about the college process and the transition from school to career. The event featured workshops on financial aid, college and career planning, and provided students the opportunity to meet with over 45 college, apprenticeship, military and financial aid representatives.  

“Preparing high school students to launch into college and their careers can be both exciting and scary,” said Michele Strasz, Executive Director of the Capital Area College Access Network. “We hope this event provided students with the information they need to navigate the process and feel empowered that a college experience is within reach for anyone.” “Whether a high school student is pursuing a track of college, career or a mixture of both, there are opportunities readily available to students to help navigate their futures,” said Cindy Anderson, Superintendent of Eaton RESA. “Our team partnered with the Capital Area College Access Network to bring resources to students and expose them to these opportunities in a supportive environment.”
