Why Leon Works?
By 2024, Leon County and the surrounding region will have 26,000 new jobs that require more than a high school diploma, but less than a four-year college degree. To address the need, Leon County Government is hosting the Leon Works Expo (October 20) to bring together the community, employers, academic institutions, and students & job seekers. The event will feature local employers as well as courses to help job seekers find and grow into their career. In the morning, the Expo will be open to students who will learn from local success stories while also visiting with employers. Later in the day, the Expo will be open to everyone in the community who may be seeking a career change, new opportunities, or has yet to find the career that best fits them.
