School to World Lets 8th, 9th Graders Explore Careers

Annual Event to be Held Saturday at Convention Center

Albuquerque businesses, local governments, and educators have come together again for School to World, an annual event that gives eighth and ninth grade students an opportunity to explore careers and post-secondary education. The School to World event will be held from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 12, at the Albuquerque Convention Center.

Career clusters represented that day include arts, communication and entertainment; business; health and medicine; public service; science, engineering and technology; manufacturing and construction; and community and education.

Volunteer professionals in each career cluster will explain their job duties, what education and skills training is needed to qualify for their occupation, and why they chose their specific career or job. The volunteers will show students the link between school subjects they learn today with the work skills needed for their future career interests.

There also will be representatives on site from vocational schools, colleges and universities to talk with students, as well as community agencies that promote citizenship and hands-on skill development.

Teachers are encouraged to bring students from their schools. Parents are also welcome to attend with their children.
