5th & 8th Grade Career Exploration Days

5th & 8th Grade Career Exploration Days

5th & 8th Grade Career Exploration Days

Each spring area business people share their job experiences with area students.  The Future Workforce Committee, of the Greater Burlington Partnership, has hosted a 5th Grade Career Fair and an 8th Grade Project CAPE Career Fair for over 10 years.  The career fair is held at Southeastern Community College and combined attendance for the 2 fairs is over 650 students each year.

Helping our area students explore career paths right here in their own backyard is the key focus of our Career Exploration activities.   Our goal is to increase awareness of jobs available in the area as well as the skillsets and education needed to obtain those jobs.
