Future Centers


What is the Future Center?

The goal of the Future Center is to increase the number of students continuing their education after high school by assisting students in discovering opportunities in careers that are sustainable and rewarding and to connect students and their families with the information and resources necessary to pursue post high school education.

The goal is to make careers and college relevant to all students by providing first hand career experiences that will allow students to make more informed decisions about their future. The TSMP Future Center establishes partnerships with local businesses for internships, job shadows and special guest presentations. By providing opportunities for students to engage in careers with local companies while gaining the necessary education to achieve employment, TSMP will provide a return on investment to North San Diego County’s workforce by preparing the next generation of workers.

The Future Center is located at the North County Regional Education Center (NCREC)

255 Pico Ave Suite 103

San Marcos, CA 92069
