Parents and students will have an opportunity to map a path to college and careers at the Elk Grove Unified School District’s first annual Map Your Future: K-12 Career Pathways Exposition from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, October 8 at Monterey Trail High School. The event is offered through a partnership between EGUSD, Elk Grove Chamber of Commerce and Elk Grove Economic Development Corporation.
The event will feature 14 of California’s industry sectors, which include agriculture and natural resources, energy environment and utilities, engineering and architecture, health science and medical technology, information and communication technologies, and manufacturing and product development. These industries have been identified by Elk Grove and Sacramento leaders as having the greatest potential for growth.
At the event, current and former EGUSD career academy and pathway students will be available to speak with and answer questions from students and parents. Teachers, counselors and school and district administrators also will be on hand to answer questions and offer guidance on applying for an EGUSD academy or pathway. Representatives from post-secondary educational institutions also will be available to provide information about how EGUSD’s career academies and pathways connect with college and business partners will be on hand to offer insight into the local labor market.
Thanks to a generous donation from the City of Elk Grove, the first 500 participants will receive $3 vouchers to use at food trucks that will be at the event.
