Besides Black History Month, February is a time in our district to celebrate Career and Technical Education. Throughout the month, we’re covering our CTSOs (Career and Technical Student Organizations) to share information and stories for families. This week, we’re covering HOSA.

In our school district, HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America) stands out as an invaluable program shaping the future of our students. This organization goes beyond the conventional classroom experience, offering practical insights and skills essential for success in the healthcare field.

For those unfamiliar, HOSA is a not-for-profit organization preparing high school and college students for careers in healthcare worldwide. HOSA students put their medical knowledge to the test through competitions and practical experiences.

The organization prepares students for careers in various healthcare fields, emphasizing problem-solving, communication, and critical thinking skills.

Practical Impact: HOSA Shaping Career Futures

HOSA is not just an extracurricular activity but a practical conduit to success. This program equips students with the skills to navigate the dynamic healthcare landscape. From simulated challenges to networking opportunities with industry professionals, our students gain hands-on experiences that set them apart.

For real-life stories illustrating the impact of HOSA on our students’ futures, we invite you to read our most recent article on Isabella Leite, a student who excelled as HOSA president, making waves by translating local clinic forms into Portugese and developing a curriculum aimed at informing students about intimate child abuse 

Or, read about our students who placed at an international leadership conference, demonstrating their excellence and leadership abilities within the HOSA community.

What’s Next? Joining HOSA

We encourage parents, students, and community members to speak with your counselors about how you can join or support HOSA programming. 

Stay updated on HOSA news and events by visiting our district’s official website for CTE.

HOSA isn’t just a club but a practical community that shapes leaders in our school district. We thank the teachers and advisors who make these experiences available for students.
