The Community College of Allegheny County will hold a free Healthcare Careers Academy (HCA) at South Campus for students from the South Hills – Mon Valley areas during the month of July.  HCA is a two-week summer experience designed to expose students who are entering grades 10, 11 and 12 to family-sustaining career options in healthcare. Participants will discover that today’s healthcare careers extend well beyond being a physician or nurse—and that many of these careers can be attained with a CCAC education. This project, funded by the Jefferson Regional Foundation, aims to empower students with the goal to increase their own economic mobility, and, on a larger scale, to improve the economic health of our region.

Students will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in various CCAC Allied Health and science laboratories, shadow in a hospital setting, meet potential mentors within the field, and have discussions with healthcare professionals about the important work that they do. Through critical thinking exercises, students will be challenged to build the skills that form the basis of critical judgment, a key component for success in nursing and other health career programs. In addition, the program will expose participants to a variety of soft skills exercises aimed at helping students overcome the identified barriers to success.

Session 1 will take place from July 5–8 and 11–14, and Session 2 will take place from July 19–22 and 25–28. The sessions will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and free lunch and snacks will be provided. Free weekly Port Authority bus passes are also available upon request.

Applications must be submitted by Friday, June 3. To learn more and to submit an application, visit ccac.edu/events/healthcare-careers-academy.php. For questions, email HCAcademy@ccac.edu.
