The Hudson County School of Technology’s Explore Middle School in Jersey City is the only middle school in New Jersey to have a HOSA chapter. The students in the club are gaining valuable insight into health and medical careers at an early age.
The club is student-led, meets once a week, and is preparing to compete in a state leadership conference. If they do well, they will advance to the international competition. HOSA is an international club, with chapters in Korea, Canada, and elsewhere.
Explore’s chapter has doubled in size since it was formed last year.
