DiscoverU is around the corner! Are you ready to participate?
It's almost here! DiscoverU, a week for students of all ages across Seattle and South King County to explore their college and career options, is next week -- Oct. 12 to 16. As part of DiscoverU, students will learn about educators' college and career paths, see teachers and staff showing school pride by sporting college gear, and participate in fun activities that will encourage them to explore their futures.
But DiscoverU isn't limited to schools. Businesses, colleges, community-based organizations, libraries, city governments, community members and families are invited to join DiscoverU and put college and career in the spotlight! 

Everyone in our community can share their college and career pathways through the power of social media. Show your support for college and career exploration by taking the DiscoverU pledge and help inspire new dreams among students by posting a college or career selfie! Here's how:
