Charleroi, Pa – To kick-off the 2018-2019 Program year, students from Charleroi High School were recently introduced to The Challenge Program, Inc. during an orientation assembly at their school. The assembly theme was The REAL Game of Life. This fun board game spin-off reveals to students the positive outcomes to the important choices they face everyday for career-readiness and success both in and beyond the classroom and how to earn cash incentives.
During the assembly, students in the sophomore, junior, and senior classes were introduced to local career opportunities. Throughout the year, they will be eligible to compete for financial awards in five areas linked with academic and workplace success: Attendance, Academic Improvement, Academic Excellence, STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and Community Service. The business partner for Charleroi High School during the 2018-2019 school year is Progeny Systems
At the end of the assembly, five juniors and five seniors from Charleroi High School received awards for the work they accomplished last year during the 2017-2018 school year in the five above-mentioned categories, sponsored by Progeny Systems.
The Challenge Program, Inc.’s mission is to build sustainable Business/Education partnerships while introducing students to careers in their communities. This partnership contributes to workforce and economic development by motivating students to develop the solid work habits required to succeed in school and in their future careers.
