Welcome to the Launch program at the WMCTC

The Launch program provides 11-12th grade students with an opportunity to learn a variety of career-ready skills in a hands-on environment. While in the classroom, students will learn the necessary employability skills to get and keep a job, explore career interests, create resumes, practice interview skills, and learn the essential skills of leadership, teamwork, communication, problem-solving, work ethic, flexibility/adaptability, and interpersonal skills. A Personal Finance course will be taught by CTC staff members every other year, alternating with a Technical Math course during the opposite year. Students will spend 2-3 days a week in the community participating in work-based learning experiences with local employers using the support of a job coach.
