The Warsaw Area Career Center is seeking YOUR help to find women in non-traditional careers for our 2018 Non-Traditional Employment for Women Workshop on Thursday, November 1st located in Syracuse, IN. 

Did you know that in partnership with the Wawasee Area Career & Technical Cooperative, our Career Center organizes and hosts a Non-Traditional Employment for Women Workshop for over 200 local sophomore females from six area high schools? This workshop is an exciting opportunity for young women from the area high schools to see the possibilities for their future with a career that each may not have thought about or known was available to them. The purpose of the workshop is to expand the career possibilities for young women to consider and hopefully find one that is of interest. Information presented will include education and training, typical workday, work environment, wage information, employment forecast, and advantages for women in these occupations. Hands-on experience through “try-it” activities where you can actually experience differentHands-on experience through “try-it” activities where you can actually experience different career opportunities. Build a toolbox, do a TV weather report, do a radio broadcast interview, take apart a computer, dress like a firefighter and crawl thru an obstacle course, weld a souvenir, etc.

We already have over 40 amazing speakers from non-traditional careers that take time out of their busy schedules to spend a day sharing what neat things they do with our students, but we are always looking for more women to be a part of our workshop. (A non-traditional occupation for women is one in which women comprise 25% or less of total employment for that field.) This is where we need your help! 
We are seeking help finding women in the following careers (including but not limited to):

Agriculture Careers: Farmers, Ag Managers, Tree trimming Specialists
Construction Trades Careers: Brickmasons, Stonemasons, Plumbing Specialists, Surveying & Mapping Technicians, Landscaping Workers, Painters, Roofers
Engineering Careers: Aerospace Engineers, Automotive/Mechanical Engineers, Chemical Engineers, Civil Engineering, Machinists, Welders
Other Careers: HVAC Technicians, Train Conductors, DNR Officers, Politician, Barber

If you or someone you know might be interested in participating in our workshop as a female in a non-traditional career, please pass this information along to them and/or have them contact Gabi Wall at 574-371-5074 ext. 2503 or by email at gwall@warsawschools.org.

Thank you for helping to inspire & impact young women in our community!!

Be on the lookout for this bulletin board in the Business Department hallway.  Internship - look at where some of the students have been placed and where you could go next.  Follow your career path outside these school walls!  
From Mrs. Ross- Marketing Instructor & WBL Internship Coordinator:

Every company has a story to tell (Marketing) just like every student in my Marketing classes has a story to tell.  The students created their own 'story' board in my room to express ( and market) their story. 


Chef Bragg's Advanced Culinary students are preparing for the opening of their restaurant, the Blue Apron, by practicing with different cheesecake recipes. Students not only prepared Oreo cheesecake & a traditional New York style cheesecake, but also tried various toppings, decorations, & stylings with raspberry coulis, chocolate syrups, mint leaves (from our WACC Courtyard Garden!), and whipped cream. They all looked delicious & beautiful!
