Well-educated and skilled young people add to our community’s vitality. They are critical to our area’s sustainability. The better informed students are of the choices they have after graduation, the better choices they will make for themselves.
The business and education communities have partnered in creating Find Your Future to help youth explore future career paths. The event takes place on Saturday, March 10, 2012, from 10am – 1pm. There’s still time for teens to sign-up for this free event.
Thurston County students (8-12 grade) and their parents are invited to attend. Find Your Future helps students consider various fields of interest in a fun and informative format.
During the event, students will attend two breakout sessions led by area professionals while parents hear from several experts discussing topics ranging from financing college to assisting their students in career development. The event concludes with students and parents attending a Resource Fair of colleges, universities, and organizations that focus on career and educational information.
This popular, every-other-year event typically draws a crowd of over 650 students and parents. There is no cost for either students or parents to attend.
Find Your Future is a program of the Thurston County Chamber Foundation and is co-sponsored by Thurston County school districts.
