More Bibb County students will get extra help carving out a career path starting in August.
The school district teamed up with the Macon-Bibb County Office of Workforce Development to place a career coach at each of the 7 high schools, and hire a coordinator.
The coaches will help students discover fields they're interested in.
"These career coaches will work with students to guide them through completing career interest surverys and conducting online career research, exploring career options so that they can find their passion," said Sharon Joyner, Director of the district's Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education program.
Workforce Development Director Kathy Thompson says they've given the district a $150,000 grant to go towards the career coaches, while the district adds about $100,000.
