TULSA, Okla. — High school freshmen and sophomores are exploring career opportunities at Tulsa Tech.

This is the third year for the Dream Out Loud program. It's a partnership between Tulsa Tech, the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office and the Martin Luther King Jr. Commemoration Society.

Their goal is to show students that they can still have successful careers even if they don't go to a four-year college.

Students attended workshops to learn about jobs in manufacturing, emergency medical services, technology and criminal justice.

"It gives us an opportunity to talk to them face to face and say hey, this is a career that you can have. This is what it can do for you," said Sheriff Vic Regalado with the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office. "There is money to be made and its a service to your communities."

Sheriff Regalado says his office has hired kids who have attended this program before.
