This industry-led initiative pulls together more than 50 regional companies to showcase “Worlds of Work”. Each World is led by a chairperson, called a “World Leader,” who engages companies within the respective industry to create the central element of the expo – the hands-on activities. Worlds will engage partners, identify careers to highlight, and create hands-on interactions that link careers to the classroom. Visiting the event for just under two hours, students pick their favorites of the Worlds to visit and learn about careers available close to home.
This year’s expo will represent: Construction, Advanced Manufacturing, Healthcare, Hospitality & Tourism, Information Technology and Public Service & Safety.
Participation is completely free.
