Middle and high school students (with their parents), can spend an evening exploring career options at the 2020 Future Careers Expo and Parent Pathways Awareness Night. The Chamber’s Foundation is partnering with PA CareerLink and Central Pennsylvania Workforce Development Corporation to host this wonderful opportunity to introduce parents and middle and high school students to the variety of career pathways that exist for success in a future career. Employers can meet with students (and parents) and share information about the types of work that is done, and the jobs that are available. This is not intended to be a “job fair”, but an opportunity to inspire students to explore a career path.
The event will be held Tuesday, March 3rd from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. at the Columbia Montour Area Vocational Technical School. Refreshments will be available.
Middle and high school students and their parents from at least eight area districts (Benton, Berwick, Bloomsburg, Central Columbia, Columbia Montour Vo-Tech, Danville, Millville, Southern Columbia) are invited to attend. The goal of this event is to educate students about the many great career opportunities in our area, including the types of industries available here, the skills and education needed for specific careers, and future job openings. Representatives will be present from healthcare, manufacturing, law enforcement, military, hospitality and more.
Register for the event at https://tinyurl.com/futurepathexpo no later than Wednesday, February 26. For questions or additional information, contact Jeff Emanuel at the Foundation at [email protected] or 570-784-2522.
