THEME DAY RESOURCE SPOTLIGHT:
DISCOVER LOCAL JOBS
Monday, Oct. 8 will be #DiscoverLocalJobs Day! One activity that teachers, youth workers, or parents can do is to use our
"What Jobs Do You See Every Day" poster to discuss careers in the community
with elementary-level students. It also comes with a
coloring packet. This is a fun way to build awareness about different local jobs!
DiscoverU encourages our community to come together and promote college and career exploration for the region's youth. Through fun activities in and out of school, students throughout Seattle and South King County will have opportunities to explore their futures. DiscoverU puts student interests at the center and helps connect their aspirations with the many pathways to get there.
