It takes an incredible team of employers & employees, volunteers, educators, and planning team members to ensure that our students to get the most from their Career ChoICE Youth Expo experience. We find that the steps we take to prepare everyone for the event not only help the students but also aid the adults in having the most fulfilling, least stressful time possible.
With that in mind, we've included details regarding the event below and in the linked documents. We hope that this information will help you feel knowledgeable about the purpose of the event and what to expect when you arrive on site.
In an effort to help prepare students and ensure that all our educators involved are aware of their school's individual details (schedule breakdown, lunch plans (if applicable), etc.). A member of the Career ChoICE planning team will be visiting each of the participating schools during the month of September to share information about the event.
This Video from last year's event provides a wonderful overview of what the Expo is all about!
Before attending the event students will be visited by a member of the Expo planning team, students will complete a Pre-Expo survey, and receive the Career ChoICE Student Booklet. The booklet contains helpful information regarding career pathways (education level requirements, potential earnings, etc.) and the local companies we have with jobs in those career fields here in the region. We hope that you will encourage your students to utilize this resource. Take a moment to point out the information available to them; encourage them to take it home and discuss it with their parents; perhaps even find a quick way to integrate it into a classroom lesson!
