Riverland Community College hosts four separate career cluster focused events based at the campus where the programs are located. The goal of this event is to provide a focused, worthwhile career exploration experience involving hands-on activities and demonstrations – as well as more time for prospects to connect with faculty, Riverland students, and business and industry partners.

The afternoon session is for High School students only from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. Interested students may come and explore the different career areas. High Schools are welcome to bring students in grades 10-12 who have an interest in learning about the programs showcased at each of the four campus locations.

The evening session is open to the public from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. An opportunity for non-traditional students, parents, and invested community members can come and learn about the programs offered at Riverland.
