Northwest Iowa Community College is offering summer camps to be held in June and July. “Our goal is to bring young students to our campus and help them with career exploration and awareness of different careers.” said Allie Mouw, Learning Intermediary Network Coordinator. Mouw went on to explain, “We understand sometimes it can be a little overwhelming when young people are trying to make career decisions. We want to assist and connect students with career exploration and learning opportunities and let them have fun while doing it.”
