The MOST POWERFUL WORKFORCE EVENT!  

A catalyst to prime your education-to-workforce pipeline.  Our unique approach aims to promote a community’s or region’s diverse career paths by raising awareness among 8th and 9th grade students, their families and educators.  Highlighting these options earlier can help influence student education choices and retain their talents to fill local jobs that can empower future economic growth.  Local businesses from defined career clusters provide hands-on activities during live events and engaging video content hosted in a virtual convention setting highlighting the diverse skills in-demand.

"Thank you for creating a way to teach the next generation about the workforce. We learned so much about all of the job opportunities that we will have in our area.”

 

~Elizabeth, 8th Grade

"Thank you for letting me have the opportunity to search for a job that I like. I learned that I should look at other booths and give them a chance. I always saw myself in the healthcare field. Now I'm looking at other options. I learned that you 

have to dig a little bit deeper to find important information."

~Hugh, 9th Grade

"I learned that there are a lot of jobs that us outsiders don't know about, and that there are more positions than people think that work behind the scenes. I also learned about what certain positions do. For lots of the companies, they had videos that let us students get more of an understanding on what different positions do, a normal day of work, 

and how they help out the company."
