2020 Dream It. Do It…Here Conference

March 18, 2020 @ 8:30 am - 2:30 pm

Free

The University of Idaho and the Dream It. Do It. Partners are hosting the fourth, annual Dream It. Do It…Here Conference. Five-hundred 11th grade high school students and school district counselors will experience a day of local industry breakout sessions to learn about the local job market and future career options in manufacturing, health care, skilled trades, technology, transportation, hospitality, legal, and finance. The event is for all high schools in Idaho, Lewis, Latah, Nez Perce, and Clearwater. Southeast Washington school districts will also be invited.

One-hundred, 30-minute breakout sessions will be offered. Eighty sessions will be provided by local industry partners where students will get to meet with dynamic speakers coming from local businesses. Each session will feature industry representatives sharing their experience in their respective occupations—what their company does, what they do in their jobs, how they got into their career, what they like about what they do, and what educational and career choices they made. Twenty sessions will feature the region’s higher education institutions where they will align their educational opportunities with the occupations shared at the event. Students will rotate between breakout sessions. By the end of the day, each student will have participated in five breakout sessions where they will have heard first-hand accounts of experiences with a minimum of 12 occupations and had communication with at least one college or university. Students will be matched with industry preferences for at least one of the five breakout sessions.
