Modernizing Career and Technical Education

Standing in front of her former teachers at Skyline High School in Oakland, California, this September, alum Keylah Cage had come full circle.

There to present on behalf of the Roots Community Health Clinic, a local nonprofit dedicated to health-care access, Cage outlined how the clinic might provide tutoring and counseling services to at-risk Skyline students. Just five years ago, Cage completed Skyline’s Education and Community Health career pathway program, and went on to major in public health and health education at San Francisco State University. She was hired weeks before she graduated.
