We are working on rescheduling and reformatting so the speakers
can come another time. Sorry for the inconvenience!
Contact REACH@reachgroup.org with questions.
This groupwide event is hosted by Irmo co-op. Note: this is not a drop-off event. Parents are asked to attend (and supervise your children). We can buddy-up to help for families who have multiple children with various workshop interests. Volunteers are also wanted for helping us manage the check-in and hall. Come learn about career opportunities from a variety of presenters. Each presenter is speaking for 25 minutes, several presenters available at each time slot. Please RSVP so we can estimate how many attendees for each speaker. We ask that you arrive a few minutes early so you can check in the lobby and find the classroom before the speaker begins. If you arrive late, we may ask you to wait till the next speaker/session begins so as not to disrupt the current session.We ask that you take disruptive students and younger siblings out of the session. A nursery area is available if you need to step out. Thanks for understanding!
