We welcome grade-school aged groups to station tours that emphasize workplace applications of school-taught skills, and we attend career choice fairs for middle and high schoolers, who are encouraged to job shadow. We also provide internships for college-level students in several areas of our stations' operations. And, staffers read extensively in area schools and have begun our 25th year of Book Breaks, with staffers reading to children at area libraries in an effor to keep up reading skills over the summer.
