An Oct. 9 Open House at the SWBOCES Center for Career Services in Valhalla will highlight the many career and technical education opportunities available on campus to the region’s high school students.
The event, to take place between 6 and 8:30 p.m., is an opportunity for the families of current students to see the work that’s been going on in classrooms since early September.
It is also an opportunity for the center to highlight its diverse range of programs and the career options it can offer prospective students looking to adapt to a changing job market. Families of high school students as well as school district staff throughout the southern Westchester region are encouraged to attend.
Students from the Culinary Arts Program will participate in the campus-wide event by passing around appetizers and other delicious snacks they’ve prepared. In addition, students in the Cosmetology Program will gain extra hours of practical experience by demonstrating hair-washing techniques and other related skills.
The Career Services Center is located at 65 Grasslands Road, Valhalla. Some of the programs available to high school students include automotive technology, certified nurse assistant, collision technology, commercial art, computer information systems, construction/plumbing, electrical construction, fashion design, graphic and interior design, pre-engineering, security, law and policy, TV video production and more.
No RSVP is needed to attend.
