Welcome to Worlds of Work 2023
Each year, businesses, educators, and economic development partners in Clarke County, Frederick County, Page County, Rappahannock County, Shenandoah County, Warren County, and Winchester, Virginia, come together to host Worlds of Work. This year, the event takes place on September 14, 2023, in the James R. Wilkins Jr. Athletics & Events Center on the Shenandoah University campus.
Nearly 3,000 eighth grade students from the region will experience WoW! More than 70 businesses showcase equipment, vehicles, and machinery that students climb into, fix, and manipulate. The event is designed to be a hands-on exploration of possible careers. Businesses are encouraged to include hands-on activities that offer students a chance to get a glimpse into what a job at your company may entail. There are animals students can touch and care for as well as life-like mannequins they might splint and stitch.
