Career Challenge Day

Career Challenge Day is a free career exploration event for female, nin-binary, and gender non-conforming students in grades 6-9. Middle school students are invited to their local career and technical center for a day-long event where they meet the instructors of non traditional programs (programs where female identifying students comprise of 25% or less of students enrolled) and participate in hands-on activities to gain a better understanding of the courses, learning activities and corresponding career pathways. Career Challenge Day creates the opportunity for students to think broadly about their futures, explore in a fun and confidence-building environment, and consider incorporating career and tech center education into their learning journey.

Vermont Works for Women offers this career exploration event for all schools, and can tailor the program to fit the needs of a particular school and audience. Interested in bringing Career Challenge Day to your school? Learn more today!
