Education & Career EXPO
The Education & Career EXPO, which began in 2004, provides the opportunity for employers to showcase careers and colleges and universities to showcase related education opportunities, providing the opportunity for high school students–especially seniors–to learn about Valley opportunities and interact with representatives of these organizations. RGV LEAD leads a large group of partners that organize and promote the EXPO each year.
The EXPO includes events focused on various aspects of college and career preparation and success, and exhibits provide interactive, hands-on opportunities for students to investigate and learn more about college-and-career opportunities in the Valley. Workforce Solutions Cameron is a major sponsor of this event, with sponsors also including the Rio Grande Valley Chapter of Associated General Contractors, Harlingen Manufacturers Association, Texas Southmost College, Texas Gas Service, and others.
