Industry Career Camp

Industry Career Camp is a FREE virtual summer program for middle and high school students (6th through 12th grade), their parents, and educators to learn more about the cutting edge and emerging careers in Lackawanna County.

Presented by Skills in Scranton, the workforce development affiliate of the Chamber, the program will use video presentations to highlight local businesses, the quality careers they have available, and the pathways students can take to successfully acquire those positions.

All students will receive a certificate of completion and a Chamber credential to signify their participation and completion of intensive employability and career exploration activities. This will be a great addition to any resume, college, or scholarship application.

Video presentations can be viewed weekly at the time most convenient for participants. The program will conclude with an in-person, closing session allowing students to debrief on their camp experience, following CDC guidelines including mask-wearing and social distancing.

Students and parents can expect:
  • To explore careers in healthcare, manufacturing, logistics, business, and construction
  • To meet with local business professionals to learn about careers available at their companies
  • To enhance student career pathways exploration to achieve these careers
