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
- Health science
- Hospitality and tourism
- Human services
Registration opens in February for youth participation during March.
