Background

In January 2019, the Toledo Public Schools Career Technology department held its inaugural Career Connect Expo. The career awareness event hosted more than 1,600 8th grade students. They had an opportunity to explore 30-plus unique TPS Career Technology programs and learn about related careers from 60 business and industry partners, representatives from 10 colleges and universities and four branches of the military. Seniors from the Career Technology programs met with the community partners to discuss future career options. Check out the video to catch the excitement of the event!

Plans for this year 

This year, the Career Connect Expo will be held on November 12, 13 and 14 at the Seagate Convention Centre in downtown Toledo. Every eighth grade student will have an opportunity to explore the 16 career clusters with interactive activities. Sophomores will participate in hands-on experiences to learn more about the more than 30 Career Technology programs offered at Toledo Public Schools. Additionally, there will be a Career Fair for high school seniors currently enrolled in the district’s Career Technology programs. On the evening of Wednesday, November 13, the Career Connect Expo will be open to parents and community members.
