ENGAGE • INFORM • INSPIRE
Through an interactive series of activities and discussions with employers, Mission Tomorrow will open the door of possibilities as students explore career interests and in-demand jobs from 140+ businesses in our region.
On October 18 & 19, 2018, public school 8th grade students will have the opportunity to attend the Mission Tomorrow event at the Richmond Raceway Complex. At the event, 140+ Richmond region businesses will have booths with interactive activities designed to introduce students to the wide range of careers available in the Richmond region. This information will be helpful to the students in making informed decisions about their futures.
You may wonder why an eighth grader needs to be thinking about future careers now. The answer is that the course choices that a student makes going into his/her freshman year of high school can impact the career pathways available in the future. Starting to about things a student likes doing and is good at is a good way to start the discussion about future careers.
