LIFE-READY EXPO

Students in grades 7-12 and their families can find out more about a variety of career and educational pathways on Oct. 19 at HCPS’ annual Life-Ready Expo. The event will be held at Hermitage High School.

Students and families can explore career paths at the Expo while talking with more than 70 employers. Attendees will have a chance to:

  • Find out about career opportunities and understand the total value of their pay and benefits.
  • Discover multiple ways to “learn and earn” by taking advantage of employer programs that pay for employees to attend college and receive other training after high school.
  • Talk face-to-face with employers about what their industries will need in coming years — and how you can acquire those skills.
  • Quiz industry and government representatives about their own paths to success.

Henrico County Public Schools Life-Ready Expo

When: Oct. 19 from 6-8 p.m.

Where: Hermitage High School, 8301 Hungary Spring Road, Henrico, Va. 23228

All attendees, regardless of their vaccination status, are required to wear masks at the event.

Being “life-ready” is one aspect of the school division’s Henrico Learner Profile, HCPS’ blueprint for K-12 education. It emphasizes the importance of “six Cs” for students: developing quality character and becoming effective global citizens, communicators, collaborators, and critical and creative thinkers.
