Career Readiness Academy at Mosley Partners with Local Organizations

The Career Readiness Academy (CRA) at Mosley Performance Learning Center is the first New Hanover County school to collaborate with the Wilmington Hammerhead Professional Soccer Club assisting in promotion, implementation, and expansion of their newest outreach program. This hands-on opportunity will allow students to explore various careers affiliated with a professional athletic team through volunteering, job-shadowing and internships. Other partnerships that CRA has established are with the Hugh McRae Park officials and YMCA programs such as the Y- Express program, lifeguard program and their after-school program. Wrightsville Beach Family Medicine has also partnered with CRA to offer student job-shadowing opportunities.

The Career Readiness Academy works to expose students to a variety of lifelong opportunities and graduate them with an established foundation of college and career readiness. Through the College and Career promise initiative, CRA students are able to take courses at Cape Fear Community College. Current CRA students are enrolled in classes such as Cosmetology and Criminal Justice at CFCC. The opportunity for student to attend CFCC, will allow them to graduate high school, gain college credits, and establish a strong platform for their college and/or career path.

Organizations interested in being a part of CRA’s job-shadowing/internship program should contact Jana Barone, Career Development Coordinator, at 910-251-6161 ext. 211.
