GREAT FALLS — Great Falls College MSU is giving middle and high school students a chance to experience hands-on activities that will highlight potential career opportunities available to them.

The Pathway for Your L.I.F.E. event, held on October 24 at the Montana ExpoPark from 9 a.m. to noon, gives students an opportunity to explore a variety of career options by participating in hands-on activities. L.I.F.E. stands for learn, interact, formulate and educate. The goal is for students to learn about many different career pathways, interact with people who work in those pathways, formulate a plan about how students can think about their future, and educate their family members about what they experienced.

“The L.I.F.E. Event provides an opportunity for students to be exposed, in a broad way, to a variety of career options,” said Madison Graham, Montana Career Pathways Coordinator for Great Falls College MSU. “Students attending will range from grades 8 through 12 and will be able to experience different career fields in an interactive environment.”

Industries represented include:

  • construction and manufacturing
  • finance and business
  • arts, communication and marketing
  • information technology
  • education, human services, law and public safety
  • transportation and distribution
  • allied health
  • natural resources and agriculture

Students can register for the L.I.F.E. Event by contacting their school’s counseling office.

The event is held as a partnership between Great Falls College MSU, United Way of Cascade County, local school districts and industries.
