School to Career - Teen Market

Since 2014, School to Career has been working with the Hillsboro Tuesday Night Market to provide a Teen Market program that gives students a natural introduction to entrepreneurship. Participating students receive business counseling and have the opportunity to sell their products at several venues, including the Tuesday Night Market, the Hillsboro Farmers Market, and the Aloha Farmers Market.
