Students at Daniel Jenkins Academy (DJA) participated in the SC Days Trident Youth Expo, a virtual career awareness event, hosted by SC Future Makers Initiative, SC Department of Commerce, and Trident Youth Advisory. The event was held on March 24, 2022, and included presentations by companies such as Boeing, Cullum, SC PORTS/SCPA, Volvo, and Walmart.
The expo afforded students and educators the opportunity to join and engage with employers and in-demand local industries through a series of interactive sessions during the school day. In addition to virtually touring companies, students and educators were able to see and hear about career opportunities in South Carolina and opportunities that exist beyond the state's border through advancement, growth, and travel opportunities.
“My students were in awe at the great employment opportunities that the Lowcountry and South Carolina, in general, have to offer,” said DJA’s Computer Science Teacher Tarikia White. “We look forward to more virtual events that allow us access to both educational and employment opportunities.”
