SCK LAUNCH - Experience
Career Expo, November 9 & 10 @ the NCM Motorsports Park
SCK LAUNCH Experience
SCK LAUNCH is a direct result of the Chamber's commitment to strengthening the region's talent pipeline. As the Chamber continues to work with our K-12 and higher education institutions in Bowling Green and Warren County, the stronger and better aligned our education efforts will become to meet the needs of our local business and industry.
Experience is a hands-on career expo that focuses on eighth-grade students in Warren County as they begin to explore career pathways for their high school years and beyond. It  exposes students to careers available in South Central Kentucky while supporting an understanding of the educational pathways necessary to achieve those careers. Experience demonstrates what each career involves through interactive "a day in the life" activities while providing valuable information, like potential salaries, in that field.
For information on how you can get involved with this groundbreaking initiative, please contact Katie Dykes.
