High school students can learn about competitive, high-wage career opportunities and meet with potential employers at the Worlds of Opportunity (WOO) Varsity event.

SAWDC AlabamaWorks! is hosting its 10th annual Worlds of Opportunity hands-on career exploration event.

Students will have the opportunity to talk to industry professionals about high-demand jobs in our region and how they can obtain these jobs in the future.

High school seniors who attend WOO Varsity will be entered into a drawing to win a $1,000 scholarship toward a technical program, to Bishop State Community College, Coastal Alabama Community College, or Reid State Technical College.

The event is held in conjunction with Worlds of Opportunity (WOO), a career expo for 8th grade students. The middle school portion is only open to schools in the region that SAWDC Alabama Works serves and is not open to the general public.
