Career Jam

1000 Coffeen Street

Watertown, NY 13601

c/o Jefferson-Lewis WIB


 

What:  Career Jam

Where: Watertown Fairgrounds Arena & Agricultural Hall

When:  September 17, 2014 (set-up on September 16, 2014)

 

Career Jam is a one day hands-on career exploration event for 1500 ninth grade students from the 19 school districts in Jefferson and Lewis Counties.  This event is designed to highlight the major employment sectors in our area:  Agriculture, Construction, Healthcare, Hospitality and Tourism, and Manufacturing.  Creating this hands-on event engages students, as well as encourages them to look at different sectors and areas of study relevant to where we live.  We want to provide our youth with this valuable information as they decide what careers and education to pursue.

 

We are asking for representatives from each sector to set up a booth at Career Jam with an activity and/or display that will provide our students with the opportunity to see what various occupations entail.  One example could be a mock surgical room with a mannequin where participants remove an object.  This would highlight the various occupations in a hospital operating room; from surgical technician, to surgical nurse, to surgeon.  Manufacturers could have demonstrations of their products and highlight occupations from technicians to engineers.  If you would like to see what companies are doing with a similar program in the Finger Lakes region, check out the link below:

There is no fee to participate in this event.  However, any donation to help cover the costs of set-up, providing lunches, educational materials, etc. would be greatly appreciated.  All donations will be used directly for this event.

 

On the next page is a registration form for your participation.  Please return it as soon as possible to the address listed.  We thank you in advance for your help with this great educational opportunity!

 

Sincerely,
