“Career Jam is an amazing annual event.  The energy and enthusiasm of the middle level students in attendance, as they interact with the various careers on display, is contagious.  In my 33 years in education, this is one of the best student-centered, experiential activities I have had the pleasure of being involved in.   The students value and appreciate the opportunity and the adults representing business and industry do too. “

Mark Fish, Superintendent of Schools, Greenwich Central Scholl District

“Career Jam is an exciting and unique event that is interactive, fun, educational and engaging.  Students from 8th and 9th grade have the opportunity to explore the many different careers opportunities in our region.  In this one day event, students are introduced to many different types of employers which open student’s eyes to what their future can look and feel like.  Employers showcase careers by providing hands on activities that reflect real job functions.  As an employer this event enables me to connect with our future workforce.  As past Chair of Saratoga, Warren, Washington Workforce Development Board it provides opportunities to support our region’s growth and to sustain a viable workforce.”
