The Houston ISD Career Readiness Department provides career awareness, exploration and education to all students. We prepare students for high-skill, high-growth occupations in the Houston region through CTE programming.

Under that umbrella, the Career Ready Wagon, a traveling career exploration show, visits elementary schools to bring an entertaining, interactive, and informative career experience to students in pre-kindergarten through 5th grade.

Activity stations and hands-on exhibits are set up in and around the bus for students to personally explore how different interests and skills can link to a future career.

Career exploration activities, encouraging continued exploration of lessons and activities presented on the bus, are available for students to take with them.

Career-focused interactive performances and presentations.

Customizable career curriculum, based on the needs of the school, is available. The Career Ready Wagon offers a standard career curriculum, however, collaboration with the school regarding both content and format is encouraged.

Pre and post-visit online resources are available to encourage continued exploration of lessons and activities presented on the bus
