IGNITE Youth Careers Expo

Now in its 13th year, the IGNITE Youth Careers Expo is a free event for career seekers and changers. Attendees are either looking for a new job opportunity or working out their study path for their ultimate career, IGNITE is the place to find their future. They can explore different professions and gain further information on study options, apprenticeships and more that will help to define and achieve their goals.

We will be offering attendees to be part of small workshop groups, with interactive and casual workshops for students to learn more about a profession, trade, get hands on and understand how they can pursue that career.
