Event Details

Citizen Schools Eighth Grade Academy students are learning to navigate career pathways and become masters at networking. At the 6 Degrees Networking and Opportunity Fair event, students will test their skills by conversing with professionals from leading companies and community organizations to learn about the jobs and industries of tomorrow.

How can YOU get involved? 
  • Host an Opportunity Booth: Opportunity Booths connect students to one or two careers or programs at a particular company or organization. More than just a conversation, Opportunity Booths provide hands-on activities that show students what skills they need to be a programmer, business analyst, youth worker, government employee, and more.
  • Join as a Citizen Schools Alumni: All Citizen Schools alumni are invited to attend the event to learn about different career pathways and summer programming opportunities.
