Do you have an idea of what your future will look like? Do you need support along your journey?

Discover U weeks (October and April ) are an exciting time for our community and staff to come together and support students in exploring the many different career and college options. Through fun activities in school and in the community, students throughout the Tacoma Public School District will have opportunities to explore their futures. Discover U puts the student interests at the center and helps connect their aspirations with the many pathways to get there. This year's theme will focus on the many different career paths in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics).

If you have questions, or need assistance with navigating your options, please contact Joseph Colón, Assistant Director of Collective Action at jcolon@graduatetacoma.org.
