Great Oaks workshop for middle schoolers, parents


Submitted story



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, Oct. 25 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Diamond Oaks Career Campus, 6375 Harrison Ave., Cincinnati 45247.

Thursday, Oct. 25 from 6-7 p.m. at Scarlet Oaks Career Campus, 3254 E. Kemper Rd., Cincinnati 45241.

Thursday, Nov. 15 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Laurel Oaks Career Campus, 300 Oak Drive, Wilmington 45177.

Wednesday, Nov. 28 from 6-7 p.m. at Live Oaks Career Campus, 5956 Buckwheat Rd., 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.”
