Parents play a critical role in helping their children plan for the future. With the right knowledge, they can prepare their children to find careers that interest them and education that leads to those careers.

To give parents effective tools, Great Oaks Career Campuses is sponsoring a free Career Exploration Workshop for middle schoolers and parents. At this workshop, parents will learn tips and gain resources to help teens explore their interests and set career goals. Meanwhile, students will take career interest surveys and learn to interpret the results in order to set goals for high school, college, and beyond.

The free session will be held at each of the four Great Oaks Career Campuses:

Thursday, October 24 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Diamond Oaks Career Campus, 6375 Harrison Avenue, Cincinnati 45247

Thursday, October 24 from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Scarlet Oaks Career Campus, 3254 E. Kemper Road, Cincinnati 45241

Thursday, November 14 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Laurel Oaks Career Campus, 300 Oak Drive, Wilmington 45177

Wednesday, November 20 from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Live Oaks Career Campus, 5956 Buckwheat Road, Milford 45150

“Being successful in college and in life isn’t an accident,” said Great Oaks Career Exploration Specialist Sarah Taylor. “It takes thought, research and planning—and planning now will put you on the path to success.”
