Thank you for your interest in our NEXTSTEP event!

We appreciate the interest of returning partners and the addition of newly formed partnerships. Since 2018 Toledo Public Schools Career Technology Education has been dedicated to presenting an event featuring community partners, and careers to our students. This year we are combining the College Fair with the Career Connect Expo to assist our students with academic and career decisions hence the new name NEXTSTEP. We are also including all students in grades 6th ,8th , 10th , 11th , and 12th to help guide every TPS student gaining exposure to the unlimited possibilities of a promising future.

During this 3 day event, you will have the opportunity to engage with over 10,000 students. We encourage you to participate and present informative, visually stimulating, interactive displays that capture students' interests in your school, business, or career pathway.

We look forward to your attendance and working with you to answer any questions about this memorable NEXTSTEP event.
