Think about it. Through 2024, there are 811,055 high-demand career openings. What are we, as a region, doing to encourage our youth to choose those careers?

If you are a school, a student, an employer, a post-secondary educator or training provider, or a volunteer, YOU can be part of a new and exciting solution!

This is not your typical career fair. In fact, it’s not a career fair at all. During this experience, students will engage with professionals and participate in activities that showcase various high–growth occupations and open their eyes to opportunities for great careers in our region.
