Preparations for our 5th Annual Career Jam have begun!  So what is Career Jam?

Career Jam is a one-day, hands-on career exploration event for 8th grade students.  This FREE event is designed to highlight local career opportunities in the 16 Career Clusters (check them out at mygpsforsuccess.com) & is designed to engage students & to encourage them to look at careers that are relevant to where we live. 

We need businesses to help show our youth what careers are available locally. You can do this by setting up an interactive booth that will allow students to examine what various occupations entail.  An example could be a mock surgical room with a mannequin where youth remove an object.  Did we mention that Career Jam is FREE & we'll even feed you & your staff lunch?  To sign up for Career Jam, please see the link to our registration form below!
