Passport to IT Careers

Passport to IT Careers is Northeast Ohio’s premiere youth IT talent event and a signature program of a regional portfolio of offerings available to local high schools.

The program, celebrating its 10th anniversary in October 2023, is a half-day career expo where over 700 high school students explore educational options, job opportunities, in their hometown to determine what it could mean for them to launch an IT career in Northeast Ohio.

Passport provides students with three experiences;

  • Career Passport
    Speed rounds with six different IT Professionals.
  • Opportunity Passport
    Students complete a gameshow-like activity to learn about post-secondary IT/Technology learning opportunities such as NEO Universities, Community Colleges, and work-bound program providers (like Urban City Codes and Tech Elevator) and the US military.
  • NEO Passport
    Students engage with IT/Tech companies to learn about opportunities in NEO.
