School Makes a Difference (SMAD)

What is the School Makes a Difference (SMAD) Program?

This program is a valuable and meaningful part of cohesive and comprehensive career development for middle school and high school students. Sponsorship of this program is shared by the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce and the Career and Technical Education Department of MMSD.  

SMAD is an opportunity for students to hear adults talk about their career journey and engage in a brief dialogue with presenters with the continued goal of having speakers represent a variety of jobs, careers, educational levels, non–traditional occupations, and race/ethnic groups.
