The Colorado Virtual Career Fair is an educational event intended to expose youth to a broad sampling of career fields and to hear stories of what careers are and how different life journeys have been traveled. This is not a hiring event.
The Colorado Virtual Career Fair began with a collaborative vision to utilize virtual engagement to foster equity and youth access. Career panels are structured on Colorado’s career cluster model and representative of diverse groups of professionals within those careers.
With equity as a guiding principle, and leveraging strong industry relationships, the Colorado Association for Career and Technical Education (CACTE) and the Colorado State Youth Council (SYC), along with other key collaborators, have come together to connect youth as a state-wide community in a time when connecting has been a challenge.
