Connect2Success is LOSFA’s newest outreach program designed to increase post-secondary enrollment, by exposing middle and high school students to the link between academics and careers.

In partnership with post-secondary institutions, the Connect2Success Initiative provides students with opportunities to job shadow, intern, career plan, and develop skills necessary for success in the classroom and in the career of their choice. The program also expands credentialing opportunities and dual-enrollment through supported services such as mentoring, tutoring and college visits. It also increases the occasions for experiential learning activities tied to business and industry visits.

Program Highlights: Experiential Learning


Southeastern Louisiana University hosted 81 students on November 12 at their Science and Technology Open House. Students were exposed to many different programs: chemistry, physics, industrial and engineering technology, and computer science. During the open house, they were given hands-on projects to establish a connection between academics and careers, and were able to speak and work alongside current college students, and professors.

Exploring the connection between Career and Academic Preparation Paths


Current NSU students and faculty shared presentations and experiments with 285 high school students covering topics on manufacturing technology, and the Advanced Manufacturing Technician Program – which is a partnership between NSU and Central Louisiana Technical Community College in which students work part-time at a manufacturing facility and earn credit towards an associate degree in engineering technology.
