Trade and Alternative Post Secondary Fair : Tuesday, April 4

Dedham High School will be hosting a Trade and Alternative Post Secondary Fair on Tuesday, April 4 in the Library. Students will get to speak with professionals in the trades, cosmetology, real estate and behavioral health and learn about exciting opportunities for after high school graduation. All of these options at the fair do not require a 4 year degree to enter the field, but provide opportunities for full-time meaningful work. 
9-11 graders are invited to learn more about potential career paths. The goal specifically for seniors is to provide clear pathways to apply and move forward to a career after high school.

We will also be offering a block during the fair for parents and families to come in and speak with the organizations as well about career opportunities for your student. If you are interested in attending on April 4 at 10:15am in the DHS Library, please complete this form:
