Two workshops at Whatcom Community College will introduce middle-school boys and girls to non-traditional careers.
The March 17 “Guys and Guts” and April 28 “Girls Go Tech” programs will give 11- to 14-year-old students a chance to learn about healthcare and technology respectively.
Both workshops will include hands-on activities led by experts in their field, and run 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Syre Student Center at the college, 237 W. Kellogg Road in Bellingham.
Students must register by Monday, March 12, for the “Guys and Guts” workshop, in which participants will learn about jobs that include medical assisting, physical therapy, nursing and emergency response.
