Career Pathways to Creative Sector Jobs


Career Pathways to Creative Sector Jobs is a career training program at Evans High School designed to prepare youth for high-demand back-of-house arts and entertainment jobs at area theme parks and cultural institutions. Working together in a unified partnership through the grant provided by JPMorgan Chase, United Arts of Central Florida (UACF) is coordinating efforts with Evans High School, Orange County School District, University of Central Florida (UCF), Valencia College, and Children’s Home Society of Florida. Through this program, students will be able to earn a vocational certificate, a two year degree from Valencia, or a four year degree from the University of Central Florida, depending on the level of complexity they wish to pursue. Curriculum in this program is designed specifically to reflect the job skills needed for employment in the arts & entertainment industry.

In 2016, United Arts received a second grant from JP Morgan Chase to replicate this program in Osceola County, at the new STEAM  High School (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math) that will open in 2018.
