Today, Charles R. Drew 8th graders experienced World of Work, and spent an enlightening day exploring career technical programs at OXFORD Civic Center!
Exploring career technical programs allows students to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to pursue a career in a particular field, as well as gain a better understanding of the job market and the skills employers are searching for. Additionally, exploring career technical programs aids young adults in developing the strong work ethic that is essential for success.
Presenting employers guided students through hands-on, interactive activities. This forward thinking education focuses on preparing students for the future by teaching them critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, and other skills that will be necessary to succeed in the modern workplace. It emphasizes the use of technology and real-world experiences to engage students in learning.
WORLD OF WORK is powered by EastAlabama Works. The organization focuses on providing the opportunity for future workers to gain the skills necessary to achieve their goals, and enrich Alabama’s workforce by “providing opportunities for success.”
A HUGE THANKS TO THE CITY OF OXFORD FOR HOSTING THIS EVENT. IT WAS FANTASTIC.
