Operation Occupation: Unlock Your Potential

Operation Occupation is an annual, one-week, virtual career exploration camp that is designed to give youth a glimpse into multiple career opportunities behind the convenience of their screen. The on-demand videos feature a brief overview or a day in the life of a variety of jobs. The camp provides an interactive experience where youth first view informative reels featuring the career clusters, and then answer questions in an escape-room format.

Past Operation Occupation camps have featured careers from the following career clusters:

  • Agriculture, food and natural resources
  • Arts, A/V technology, and communications
  • Business management and administration
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Health science
  • Hospitality and tourism
  • Human services
  • Marketing

Registration opens in February for youth participation during March.
