Connecting kids to their futures
(and businesses to their future employees)
Planning for a career is a critical decision for young people, and their high school years are the perfect time to explore opportunities and nurture interests that could lead to a career. By helping our students navigate their options and by providing relevant classroom experiences, we can make sure they are on the road to finding a potential career.
That’s where you come in! To better prepare our students for a smooth transition from school to college and career, we are hosting Career Connections on Oct. 22 at the Infinite Energy Exhibit Hall. Career Connections is a district initiative to promote career awareness for students attending a 9th Grade Academy at one of the district’s seven College and Career Academy high schools: Berkmar, Central Gwinnett, Discovery, Lanier, Meadowcreek, Shiloh, and South Gwinnett.
Community members from across the career spectrum are needed for “show and tell” interviews and activities. Participating businesses will have exposure to more than 5,000 Academy students… students who are excited to learn about your career field!
Prospective exhibitors can find information about the event and a sign-up form online. There's no cost for exhibitors to participate in the event. To learn more, contact Dr. Kyle Jones in the Office of Academies and Career and Technical Education at 678-301-7050 or by email.
