College & Career Week

Thank you to everyone who made College & Career Week and Great American Teach-In possible. More pictures will be added soon!

Donald E. Woods Opportunity Center (DWOC) is committed to preparing our students for success after they graduate. During Reach Higher Polk! College and Career Week , students will learn about career options they might never have considered, hobbies they might never have discovered and activities they might never have experienced. Students learn from business and workforce/technical professionals, parents, and community members. Students will be inspired to remain focused and keep looking ahead to a productive future.

We kick off College & Career Week with College T-Shirt and Jeans Day! Those who wore their favorite college t-shirt got the opportunity to wear jeans all day.


Community Support

We rely on the support of our community. Did you know Polk County is the 4th lowest funded district in the state? Polk is ranked 64th out of 67 districts. Despite this, our graduation rates have steadily increased. Here are a few ways you can get involved today:

1. Volunteer in your public schools - the time you volunteer will help our students succeed in life,

2. Advocate for your public schools - write or call your senator and local representative,

3. Donate resources to support the work we do daily - to provide a high-quality education to all,

4. Share in our student success stories via FacebookTwitter, Instagram, and YouTube.
