Gretna, Louisiana is gearing up for the first annual Tech-2-Talent Youth Expo this Saturday, March 14. Hosted by the LifeSkills Foundation and co-sponsored by DXC Technology and OnPath Federal Credit Union, the expo welcomes all youth interested in technology, tech jobs, and training opportunities.
Job focus areas include technology, computer science, engineering, healthcare, cybersecurity, and digital media. “The event will educate and inform attendees about traditional and non-traditional pathways, certifications, and experiential learning opportunities that can lead to successful careers in hard and soft-skill positions in various industries.”
“Pursuing a job in tech—whether it’s digital media, coding or health IT— is not only a great idea, but it lays the foundation for a career that can generate great pay and longevity as well as equip youth with the tools they need to successfully reinvest into the community,” said Michelle Jackson, executive director of LifeSkills Foundation.
The Tech-2-Talent Youth Expo will feature a number of local technology companies, speakers and panels, and even a Tech20 Interactive Showcase where participants and their parents can be trained on a tech skill in 20 minutes or less.
Tickets are available here.
