A great event for high school students, college students, and recent graduates!

At the event educators and local industry professionals come together to introduce students to work experiences that engage, train and inspire them for the 21st-century workforce that is in demand by regional employers.

In addition to connecting with colleges and industry professionals, students who attend the expos will get to engage in hands-on work based activities, explore workplace tools and equipment and learn from real job descriptions.

We encourage high schools and teachers to consider sending their students to this event to assist with their career exploration! If you are a school administrator or teacher and would like to learn more about the benefits of sending your students to this event, please contact Tami McBride at the NCESD.
