2017 Career Connect 8th Grade Expo

The Career Connect 8th Grade Expo is a one day event for all eighth grade students in the Douglas County School District to experience meeting with businesses and higher education representatives. It will be held on Wednesday November 8, 2017 at the Douglas County Events Center in Castle Rock. The Expo was created by The Foundation for Douglas County Schools by a group of business leaders and education professionals. The Douglas County School District lends its support to the event and will be sending 5,200+ 8th grade students from twenty neighborhood middle schools and Charter Schools to attend the Expo.

The goals of the Expo are:
  • To provide a career and college awareness opportunity to 8th grade students;
  • Engage the business community to “grow their own pipeline” of highly qualified employees; and
  • Assist students with a better understanding of career opportunities and how their education can prepare them for future jobs.
Registration is now closed.  Please email Kara Good at kgood@dcsdk12.org to be put on 2018's contact list.
