2023 Algiers Career and Educational Development Program Graduation
June 3 |12:00 pm - 3:00 pm CDT
Algiers Economic Development Foundation is proud to partner with the office of Louisiana State Senator Gary Carter, Jr. to offer the Algiers Career and Educational Development Program (ACED).
This program helps junior and seniors who attend Algiers-based high schools or live in Algiers to identify career pathways, develop key workforce skills and help students create lasting connections within the Algiers community. Participating students work with Jackie Perry, the ACED Program Manager, to be matched with an Algiers-based business, shadow an employee and learn about their industry of interest. Additionally, participating students work with the program staff to develop their resume, write a cover letter, practice their interview skills and prepare a presentation about what they learned about the industry and business they shadowed.
