Each program area at Pike Career and STEM Center have advisory boards that meet on a regular basis. Advisory boards provide an essential bridge between schools and the workplace. Business and/or industrial people, community leaders, educators, parents, and students volunteer on local advisory boards to play an active role in developing a future workforce by shaping talent in the high school. Advisory board members collaborate with educators to inform curricula; help organize work-based learning activities; and provide guest speakers, field trips, budgets, and internships. Advisory boards give students the opportunity to build relationships with mentors early and learn from successful adults.
