WCSD to Hold Career Planning Family Learning Night

Posted: Updated:

Students and their parents who wonder what life will look like after graduation can learn about a number of careers by attending the sixth annual Career Planning Family Learning Night.

Set for Thursday, Nov. 15, the free session is designed to provide attendees with information on a number of northern Nevada career paths, school district resources, and more.

Students and parents will have their choice to attend short breakout sessions of their choosing. A number of local professionals will be available to discuss work in their areas. Speakers on career topics include: technology, green energy, public safety, building trades, hospitality, finance, education, medical, and NCIS (Nevada Career Information System).

"Part of preparing our students for college and highly-skilled careers is opening their eyes to the professions that are out there. This great event provides a way for students and their parents to explore potential careers and begin a conversation about the future," said Tiffany Young, the coordinator for the WCSD Family-School Partnerships Office.

Complimentary cookies and childcare for children ages 2 through 5 will be available beginning at 5:45 p.m., and the general session will begin promptly at 6 p.m. Spanish interpreters will be present, and a packet of information will be handed out to all.

Sponsors for this event include the WCSD Office of Career and Technical Education, the WCSD Department of Family-School Partnerships, the Parent University, the Academy of Arts, Careers and Technology (AACT), Western Nevada Supply, and the Western Apprenticeship Coordinators Association (WACA).
