Rockwood Students Can Explore Their Futures at Career Pathways Events

Rockwood Students Can Explore Their Futures at Career Pathways Events

For the third year, Rockwood School District is partnering with Special School District (SSD) and the Affton and Pattonville school districts to host three St. Louis County Apprenticeship and Career Pathways Showcase events.

These events will provide opportunities for students to learn more about popular careers that provide on-the-job training. The first will be held at Eureka High on Saturday, Feb. 24, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m., with events following at North Technical High School (Saturday, March 2, 10 a.m.-1 p.m.) and South Technical High School (Saturday, March 9, 10 a.m.-1 p.m.).

The interactive showcase events are intended for families and students in grades 6-12 -- as well as recent graduates – to gain exposure to exciting and fulfilling job opportunities in such careers as:

  • Advanced Manufacturing
  • Construction
  • Culinary & Hospitality
  • Healthcare
  • Information Technology
  • Public Safety
  • Transportation & Logistics

The events are free and open to students and families from all neighboring school districts. No pre-registration is required.

The showcases will connect attendees to exciting and fulfilling job opportunities, many requiring training instead of a traditional, 4-year degree. Regional employers seeking young talent will be ready to share information and guidance about career pathways, including healthcare, advanced manufacturing, construction, information technology, and public safety. Some industries will offer hands-on activities and opportunities to work with equipment to ensure students enjoy an immersive experience
