This event will expose students to local jobs and encourage them to go after those typical teen jobs to gain work experience while still in school. The cinema has recently reopened in Walterboro and is the closest one for many neighboring counties. Students will go to Ireland Creek Cinema to tour the projection area and learn about jobs that are available in the facility, and then watch a movie. When finished at the theater, everyone will travel to Dukes BBQ for lunch. Following lunch, all will return to the area office for discussion time.
Attendance is by invitation only. Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP by Friday, July 21st.
