Virtual Career Day 2021

Virtual Career Day

The Newark Public Schools Strategic Plan and logic model calls on “Game Changers” activities for students to engage in while they go through our schools, leading them to reinvest, reinvigorate and return to Newark. Game changers include, jobs, apprenticeships, internships and mentorships. To prepare students for these experiences, Career Day has been established as a district wide event, taking place in every school for students in Grades 3-8.

School Counselors, Social Workers, and Support Staff throughout the district, partnered with community agents to secure live and pre-recorded presentations from various career paths in an effort to bring a virtual learning experience to students. The students were able to interact with presenters, highlight their interests, and participate in Q&A sessions on career paths. Students enjoyed the continuation of Career Day with a virtual spin!
