Worlds of Opportunity

September 21, 2016

A project of the Southwest Alabama Workforce Development Council (SAWDC), the SAWDC Worlds of Opportunity is a hands-on career expo for eighth-grade students across Southwest Alabama’s eight-county footprint. The purpose of the event is to expose students to careers available locally and to demonstrate what each career involves through an interactive, engaging series of activities. The decision to target eighth-grade students was a strategic one: Eighth grade is a critical year for students as they are deciding on coursework pathways for the remainder of their high school years and beyond.  

The 2016 event, which will be held on September 21st and September 22nd, will showcase thirteen different industries, called “Worlds.”  Click on the links below to learn more about each World.
