Workforce Development Resources in Frisco
The Frisco Chamber of Commerce works closely with local organizations geared toward workforce development.
Frisco ISD Career & Technical Center (CTE)
FISD/CTE offers 10 Internship programs. CTE is currently selecting internship sites for next school year and would like to invite you to contact Kim Anderson at email@example.com if interested in hosting a student intern.
Internship classes include: Practicum in Marketing (paid internships via after-school employment), Sports Management, Graphic Design, Law, Architecture, Health Science, Pharmacology, and Veterinary Medical Applications
CTE provides students with not only career and academic skills, but soft skills that are needed for the modern workplace, such as critical thinking; communication; teamwork; citizenship, integrity, and ethical leadership; research tools; creativity; and innovation.
FISD/CTE offers 8 dual credit courses and 6 articulated courses.
The FISD/CTE center is serving 4484 students this year and offers programs of study in 20 areas.
Frisco ISD Independent Study & Mentorship Program (ISM)
ISM is an exciting, rigorous, elective offered at Frisco ISD high schools, designed for high-achieving juniors or seniors.
ISM would not be possible without the gracious support of professionals throughout the community. Please consider getting involved in any or all of the following volunteer opportunities. Click HERE for additional information.
Frisco ISD INCubatoredu
In addition, four Frisco ISD high schools are piloting INCubatoredu, an entrepreneurship program that brings learning to life by combining foundational business content with authentic entrepreneurial experience. The program will take students at Centennial, Frisco, Heritage, and Lone Star high schools through the process of turning a business idea into an actual pitch.
Professionals from a variety of backgrounds serve as volunteer coaches and mentors, guiding student teams through the process of developing hypotheses about a business concept, testing those hypotheses and then learning how to adapt and improve their ideas.
The program includes curriculum, resources, and training to support the District’s entrepreneurship course. Although there is a classroom teacher to support all the volunteers, INCubatoredu relies on the willingness of community members to volunteer their time and knowledge to support students throughout the duration of the program.
Entrepreneurs, as well as current and retired business professionals, have the opportunity to share their time and expertise by volunteering in one of four roles. There is a need for volunteers in the following areas: finance, marketing, web/app development, law and more.
Local entrepreneurs and business professionals can obtain more information or apply as volunteers by contacting Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org or 469.633.6864.
If you would like to be added to the Frisco Chamber of Commerce email list for opportunities to work with students, please email Karen Kim.
