Career and Apprenticeship Showcase


We are excited for this school year’s Career and Apprenticeship Showcase. We’ve revamped the event to allow more students to learn about career opportunities and connect directly with vendors.

Our goal is to also help students learn more about the skills needed in a variety of career fields so we can help guide them to register for courses that align with teaching those skills.

Explore, discover, and launch your future!

How will you connect with students?

We highly encourage all vendors to provide a hands-on, career-related activity for students. We hope students can learn more about the skills needed to enter a career in your field of work. Representatives from your company or organization should be outgoing, engaging the students in conversation and answering questions.
