SAWDC AlabamaWorks! to host career event for high school students

SAWDC AlabamaWorks! is set to host its 10th Worlds of Opportunity hands-on career exploration event on Wednesday and Thursday, and will give students the opportunity to participate in activities relating to jobs that do not require a four-year degree.

According to a press release, the free event, which will be held at the Mobile Civic Center, is set to host high school students, including 7,919 Alabama eighth graders, and 128 businesses.
Students will have the opportunity to speak with industry professionals about future jobs and high school seniors will have the chance to win a $1,000 scholarship towards a technical program at a local school.

“Students will have the opportunity to talk to industry professionals about high-demand jobs in our region and how they can obtain these jobs in the future,” the press release states. “High school seniors who attend WOO Varsity will be entered into a drawing to win a $1,000 scholarship toward a technical program, to Bishop State Community College, Coastal Alabama Community College, or Reid State Technical College.”
