Career Challenge Day
Vermont Works for Women and Randolph Technical Career Center present a free career exploration event for female and gender non-conforming students in grades 6-9. Meet people shaping the technology landscape of Vermont at your local tech center and participate in hands-on activities. Explore career pathways and learn about courses and extended learning activities for your Personalized Learning Plan. Students do not need to be enrolled in classes at Randolph Technical Career Center to attend this event! This event is open to all girls and gender non-conforming students from the RTCC sending area, not just those interested in going to RTCC!
