MISSION—When a high school student has an opportunity to shadow a professional it can change his life. When a teacher or school counselor does it, it can change 100 lives, said Tech Prep of the Rio Grande Valley Executive Director Pat Bubb.
Tech Prep is an organization that creates partnerships between school districts and employers throughout the region to help high school students learn real-world skills while earning transferable college credits, which allows high school students a head start on their future.
Here’s how it works: Tech Prep of the Rio Grande Valley has formed partnerships with schools districts, businesses and community members from Port Isabel to La Joya and in between.
