High school students have endless career opportunities ahead of them – and many leading industries are represented right here in Dubuque.

But, it’s hard to know what possibilities exist without learning more. That’s where Business After School comes in – a new, FREE three-day event that creates experiential and work-based learning opportunities for students, educators and teachers in the high-demand job sectors of advanced manufacturing, engineering, healthcare, IT/computer science, and general business.

After school on February 3, 4, and 5, a variety of area businesses will offer interactive sessions to give students a look at their industry and give them tips on education and skills needed to enter the field.

Business After School is a program of the Dubuque Area Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Dubuque Community School District, East Central Intergovernmental Association, Dubuque Area Labor Management and Northeast Iowa Community College.

The event is funded by Prosperity Eastern Iowa and the Iowa Economic Development Authority.
