DMACC’s Career Discovery Network initiatives and resources are open to all students, educators and businesses in AEA Region 11. We are designed to link education and business by providing students with opportunities to explore various career options through work-based learning activities that enhance the career exploration process.
Career Discovery Event Opportunities:
Hosted at a DMACC location, these events allow 9-12th grade students, parents and educators to explore a career pathway by attending hands-on activity sessions and demonstrations. They will learn about DMACC educational programs and connect to future careers and professionals by touring a related business.
These events are hosted by a business and open to 11th and 12th graders. Students will meet with professionals to learn about the business and specific careers. These events are for students only and transportation is the student’s responsibility.
