The Leon Works Expo is a unique one-day event bringing together high-school students and the community with skilled employers, educators, and providers of vocational training all under one roof. The Expo highlights the growing opportunities for those in skilled careers, which are jobs requiring more than a high school diploma but less than a four-year college degree.
Over 27,000 new skilled careers with a median wage of $17.09/hr. will be available in the Leon County region by the year 2023. To address this need, Leon County Government and community partners launched the first Leon Works Expo in fall 2015. By promoting these skilled careers, communities retain workforce talent and support sustainable business expansions.
The 2017 Leon Works Expo will be held on Friday, October 20 at the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center. More information coming soon!
