Youth invited to register for Career Discovery sessions | Business
The Arapahoe/Douglas Works! Workforce Center in Centennial invites youth ages 14-21 to register for no-cost Career Discovery sessions in June. Youth have the opportunity to learn about careers in information technology on June 4, healthcare on June 5, hospitality and retail on June 6 and the energy sector on June 7.
All sessions will take place from 2-4 p.m. at Arapahoe County Lima Plaza, 6954 S. Lima Street, Centennial, except for the June 5 session on healthcare, which will take place at Anthem College, 350 Blackhawk Street, Aurora.
Career Discovery is part of the Governor’s Summer Job Hunt, a program that helps youth ages 14-21 to learn essential employment skills. In each two-hour session, participants will learn about the specified industry and the demand for skilled workers in that field. Youth will hear directly from a panel of professionals about the career steps and education required for an array of careers in their industry. Attendees also will take a personality assessment to learn how suited their traits are for certain careers.
“The Arapahoe/Douglas Works! workforce center can help youth and adults alike to explore any industry, so they can make informed decisions about where to apply for a job, what to study in school or what type of degree or certification to pursue,” said Arapahoe County Commissioner Bill Holen. “Youth who attend the Career Discovery sessions will benefit from an extra level of insight by hearing from professionals about their real-life experience in a career field of interest.”
To register for one or more sessions, please visit www.adworks.org and click on “Upcoming Events” or call 303-636-1260. Space is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
