Careers in Energy Workshop at Oxnard College

Californians for Energy Independence (CEI), the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), District 17, El Concilio Family Services and Oxnard College partnered on an educational program at Oxnard College to encourage high school and college students to explore jobs in the energy industry. More than 130 local high school and college students, including 27 ESL students from Hueneme High School, attended the Careers in Energy event and learned how excelling in STEM can lead to high paying jobs after college.

The program consisted of a welcoming session with an overview on the importance of the oil and gas industry and three workshops – hands on STEM activities, panel on careers in the energy industry and panel on STEM programs at Oxnard College (college students attended a panel on the importance of professional organizations). More than 18 local oil and gas employees from diverse backgrounds provided STEM learning opportunities for the students.
