PATHWAY TO CAREERS 2015: a don't-miss for businesses and higher ed to connect with future workforce
The Northland Foundation will host the 2015 KIDS PLUS Pathway to Careers on October 27th at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center. We are currently seeking sponsors and exhibitors. Call us, or visit the Pathway to Careers webpages to find out more! At the event, up to 1,500 10th and 11th graders from across northeastern MN and Douglas County, WI, will experience:
- A high-energy opening session in Symphony Hall with national trainer and speaker, Eric Chester.
- Breakout sessions for specific industry clusters (Manufacturing and Trades, Education, Health Care, Natural Resources, etc.) featuring real people working within those clusters in the region. One session will also help undecided students to explore career directions.
- Lunch entertainment by the Theater of Public Policy, an improv troupe that will create a new act from the sights and sounds of the day.
- Expo featuring employers, workforce and economic development agencies, and higher education. All
booths will have a hands-on element--performing a chemistry experiment, trying out virtual reality welding, operating a TV camera, assisting a birth using a health care mannequin, and much more.
