Helping Grade 9-12 students learn about career paths directly from professionals in the field

World of Choices brings students together with career mentors working in desired fields, industries and professions. Each student participates in interactive sessions that will open up a world of choices and help them learn first-hand what it takes to be successful.

This experience clarifies career and educational pathways and students become actively engaged in designing their own career path.

*Our school day events are planned to coordinate into existing school schedules so that students can attend during their class time – even if the event is already in progress.

Upcoming events:

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I register?

Register ASAP! Space will be limited to provide the best experience for students.

What if I want to register my class for a different event than what’s listed? Can I register my class for more than one event? 

We’ve made a few suggestions on classes that are a good fit for each event, but we are not limiting registrations to those classes. Any educator may sign up their class for any session they deem appropriate and are welcome to sign up for more than one event if it works with your schedule.

What if my class is not able to participate in a live session?

If scheduling to attend a live forum is not an option, classes and individual students may still participate in World of Choices Online for self-directed career planning guidance and recorded mentor videos. Please visit jacampus.org and look for “World of Choices events“.
