Young people of Kelowna will be able to discover the skills they will need for tomorrow's in-demand occupations, and engage in a direct dialogue with local employers and post-secondary schools about upcoming career opportunities.

WorkBC's Career Education Day will be at Prospera Place, 1223 Water St., on Dec. 5, 2016.

Career Education Day is a day where students in grades 10 - 12 can explore, experience and learn about a variety of careers through hands on programs, business experts, post-secondary institutions and more. This one-day event is a chance for high school students nearing graduation to learn about upcoming career opportunities available in Kelowna and the surrounding area.

Parents, teachers and career counsellors may benefit, too - by discovering ways to educate and support youth in their career exploration.

The event will be open to the public Dec. 5 from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Find Your Fit is part of B.C.'s Skills for Jobs Blueprint commitment to re-engineer education and deliver the skilled workforce needed in B.C.'s growing economy. The tour has had more than 180, 000 participants so far, and was most recently in Vancouver.
