Career Connect

Manufacturing

Students meet at the High School each week (5th & 6th Hour) with a TCC Instructor.

The first semester consists of Manufacturing (Safety & Quality Training) curriculum through TCC.  Students must also pass the WorkKeys Test. 2nd Semester, students will have the potential for paid internships.  This program is still being developed. Full time employment is a possibility upon graduation for seniors. Drug testing will be required for a paid position. Students myst be 18 years old for this program.

City of Tulsa Automotive Technician Internship

Students can enroll in either of three blocks: 

  • 2nd/3rd hour    
  • 4th/5th hour   
  • 5th/6th hour  

It is open to juniors and seniors.

The City of Tulsa provides aprons and steel toed boots.  Students will learn how to write tickets for work orders, issue parts, and shadow on the floor.  During this time, they will also be eligible to take all of the on-line classes for Ford Certification and International Fleet Certification.  There are still physical classes required to complete certification, but the City of Tulsa is trying to partner with Ford and International to see if they will pay for the additional classes. 

During the second semester there is an opportunity for paid positions after school and for summer.  Full time employment is a possibility upon graduation for seniors. Drug testing will be required for a paid position.

Associated Builders and Contractors Internship

The Associated Builders and Contractors will offer construction internships that will be available to juniors and seniors.  Office placements, electrician apprenticeships, plumbing, HVAC, and general contracting placements are available to students with their own transportation second semester.

General Service Learning

Union also offers placements in

  • IT (High School)
  • Peer Tutor (9th Grade)
  • Peer Tutor (HS 2nd, 4th & 6th hours available) 

If students can secure their own placement at any district site or with a company/community service organization, they are welcome to enroll in Service Learning.  They need a completed application and a signature from me before a schedule is changed if possible.  Open to juniors and seniors.  This is a great opportunity to job shadow and explore career options or to use class time for community service volunteering. Transportation is a must if traveling off campus.

Red Ribbon Week

Red Ribbon Week, which is celebrated annually October 23-31, is the nation’s oldest and largest drug prevention awareness program. Union Public Schools will host a myriad of activities during this time to raise awareness as well.

Red Ribbon Week was started after the death of Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Special Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena, who in 1985 was brutally tortured and murdered by drug traffickers he was investigating in Mexico.  As a tribute to SA Camarena, high school friend, Henry Lozano and Congressman Duncan Hunter, created “Camarena Clubs” and the wearing of a red ribbon to show their oppositions to drugs.

Union school sites will host activities ranging from special assemblies, special dress-up days to classroom activities that address the concerns related to illicit drugs.
