HIGH SCHOOLS CONNECT STUDENTS WITH INDUSTRY
The Economic Development office places great importance on fostering relationships with the schools, businesses, and students. In October, we had the opportunity to present at the Sebring High School Alumni Career Fair and the Avon Park High School Career Cafe.
The Career Cafe is a unique initiative that brings local employers into the school to tell the students about career opportunities. Our presentation focused on highlighting the great businesses that are located in Highlands County and the skills that are needed for these career opportunities.
Our schools are making a conscious effort to build a skilled future workforce and to bring greater awareness to local career opportunities. There are programs similar to the Career Cafe on campuses throughout the county.
Let us know if you'd like more information or if your business would like to become plugged into these programs. We'd be happy to connect you!
