National Center for Construction Education & Research
Through an interactive series of activities and discussions with employers, Mission Tomorrow will encourage students to explore career interests and in-demand jobs from over 140 businesses in our region.
Students also will gain a better understanding of what it means to be prepared for a job and be exposed to various career and technical education resources within their localities.
About 12,500 public school 8th graders in all eight localities within the region (Charles City, Chesterfield, Goochland, Hanover, Henrico, New Kent, Richmond and Powhatan) will be participating. Eighth grade is such a critical year for students as they are deciding on coursework pathways for their high school years and beyond.
