Military and Protective Services Career Exploration Workshop — Littleton High School 

The Military and Protective Services Career Exploration Workshop (MAPS) is an evening event in which students and their families can explore careers in Military and Protective Services. The purpose of this event is to encourage and inspire students and parents to consider Military and Protective Services as an achievable pathway to pursue after high school. This event will provide opportunities for students and families to directly communicate with members of various branches of the military in regard to career opportunities including enlistment, military academies, national guard and ROTC (all great ways to pay for college!). The workshop will also lay out career pathways for emergency services, firefighting and law enforcement.
