ROP Provides Career Technical Courses to Middle School Students at the Cabrillo Advancement Program

ROP students practice taking pulse

Santa Cruz County ROP has been participating and supporting the Cabrillo Advancement Program since 2008 by providing Career Technical courses during their summer academy. Since this cooperative venture started, supported by a Career Technical Education (CTE) Grant, over 700 students have received academic and technical support through classes such as Culinary Arts, Medical, Construction and Engineering, Bike Repair, Video Production and more. Karen Lemon, ROP Middle School Career Outreach Coordinator, has worked with Liz Dominguez, the Director of the CAP program, to provide this instruction. ROP is proud to be part of this program that allows students to envision their futures through career and academic development. In 2014, the Cabrillo Foundation hired a videographer to make a short video about the Cabrillo Advancement Program (CAP) academy.
