JABC TechWorks introduces B.C. youth to the jobs of the future
JABC TechWorks is an exciting multi-school program experience that introduces B.C. students to a variety of tech and tech-related careers. Because technology is a leading economic driver of growth, the demand for skilled employees is sky high.
In 2021, JABC is converting the traditional one-day JABC TechWorks program into an interactive online program that will reach approximately 2,000 students province-wide— more than ever before. JABC TechWorks 2.0 will:
• Be comprised of high production quality digital content aimed at student learners in grades 9-12
• Be focused on a variety of technology sub-sectors to ensure that the breadth of career opportunities related to tech in B.C. are well represented
• Include live Q&A sessions between the presenters & students that accompany the digital content
• Offer the digital content on-demand after their initial release, so more students will have an opportunity to learn about tech related career opportunities in B.C
