“As a former teacher, I know how important events such as IGNITE are for students and young people,” Cr Willcocks said.
“I am passionate about seeing youth inspired to take the next steps on their learning or earning journeys, and that is what IGNITE is all about.”
Lifestyle Chair Laurie Koranski said a range of new expo inclusions ensured the 10th IGNITE expo would be the biggest and best yet.
“This year, the event will offer six interactive zones including sessions on beauty, the STEM disciplines, cookery, gaming and music,” Cr Koranski said.
“Information on resume writing and taking professional headshots will also be available at our new expo zone, to help young career seekers learn how to present themselves in the best way.”
Employment agency Maxima is sponsoring Ignite in 2021.
“We are passionate about providing pathways to engaging and meaningful careers. IGNITE is a fantastic event in the City of Logan that is also committed to those goals,” said Maxima’s Queensland Business Manager Peter Jordan.
The free IGNITE Youth Careers Expo starts at 9.30am and runs until 5pm.
