Be Anything 2021: Career Day @ Noble Center
Oct 2 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Be Anything 2021: Career Day @ Noble Center

Be Anything is an innovative program that propels “Take Your Child to Work Day” to a new level. Help a child in your life explore the careers that excite them. All children can be anything; they need only the tools and opportunity to imagine, practice, and become! Do they want to be an architect, veterinarian, fireman, meteorologist? Are they unsure, but excited to try new experiences? Be Anything! is a great way to expose children to the endless possibilities they have for their future!

Join us on October 2, 2021 from 1 – 4pm to meet 30+ career professionals and learn more about what they do! This event is $5 for children 3-18, and free for adults and children under the age of 3. This event will take place at the Noble Center in Lakeview Park.

Our Be Anything: Career Day this year will feature in-person workshops with a career professional. These workshops will take place during our Career Day event and will feature a news reporter, architect, and a wildlife biologist! Space is limited. Pre-registration is required.

This year you can be anything from home with our Be Anything: Career Kits! Our Be Anything: Career Kits correspond with videos from our 2020 Be Anything: Virtual Career Day videos available on our website. Our Be Anything: Career Kits feature an engineer, a graphic designer, and a doctor, and they will include all the tools you need to practice these new skills at home. Be Anything: Career Kits will be available for pre-order online and at the PlayHouse leading up to the Be Anything: Career Day event.
