A project of the EAWIN, the EAWIN Career Discovery, held annually, is an industry-led initiative that pulls together regional industries and businesses to create a hands-on interactive career discovery experience that links careers to the classroom. Public and private schools eighth grade students (usually 13-14 years old), from throughout EAWIN Region 8, have an opportunity to visit their favorite industry sectors and learn about careers available close to home. Each student receives an EAWIN Career Discovery Student Guide, which includes information on sample occupations, educational requirements, average salaries, and information on the event’s career clusters. The 2016 event is expected to host over 4,000 students, teachers, counselors, parent chaperones, volunteers, sponsors, partners, and exhibitors.
