2019 SOVA Career Expo Volunteer Registration
Thank you so much for your interest in supporting the 2019 Career ChoICE SOVA Youth Expo!
This year's Expo will take place Sept. 24-26 at the Olde Dominion Agricultural Complex (19783 US-29, Chatham, VA 24531).
This event truly would not be possible without generous volunteers like yourself, committed to helping ensure this event is an amazing experience for our regional students.
Over 4,000 7th-10th grade students from Halifax, Henry, Patrick, & Pittsylvania Counties and Danville & Martinsville Cities will attend the event. Our goal is to show students the career opportunities available to them here in Southern Virginia, and get them thinking about their academic and career plans.
In addition to the two student days of the event (Sept. 25 & 26) we'll be hosting Expo in the Evening! Community members (parents, families, junior & senior high school students, college students, teachers, counselors, etc.) will be encouraged to attend the event Sept. 24, 4-7pm.
We hope that the Expo will once again prove to be a rewarding experience not only for the attendees but for the volunteers & participating employers as well.
Thank you again for volunteering your time. Please take a moment to complete the Volunteer Registration information that follows.
