The Discover Youth and Careers Symposium aims to inspire our region’s young people to reach their potential and discover what can be achieved, both here and anywhere.  High school students from across the region attended the inaugural event in August 2018 at the Pavilion.

Focusing on careers of the future and key industries in the Gympie Region, the Symposium includes interactive workshops with local industry and education professionals, as well as info stalls and key note speakers.

The University of the Sunshine Coast – Gympie Campus and Gympie Regional Council work in partnership to deliver this aspirational day for young people in our region.

Due to Novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the 2020 Discover Youth & Careers Symposium has been cancelled.
