Ahead of the HLSCC Career Fair, students will unleash their potential with the introduction of the Your Big Year event today, Tuesday, 12th March in the Eileene L. Parsons Auditorium from 10:00 a.m. through 3:00 p.m.


 The Your Big Year programme bridges academia to career through a skill-building and transformational experience for young people. Through interactive and engaging activities, young people learn critical life-long skills to help them see beyond their horizon and to succeed in any endeavour they pursue.


 During this one day event, attendees will be taken through a number of activities that will give them the edge they need in their next interview or their next impromptu networking opportunity.


 Activities have been tailored to allow for attendees to discover their personal brand, network and create a network, articulate who they are and how to apply this to a networking setting, learn about the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) and how they can make an impact, build an action plan to pursue their goals; and learn from industry professionals in a panel session.


Your Big Year works with young people from across 190 countries. By the end of this event, students will gain confidence in understanding who you are and which direction you want to go next. This event is powered by Digicel, Unite BVI and Rotary Club of Tortola.
