The Different Choices 2021 Transitions Fair opens on the morning of Oct. 26.

At that time, you will be able to sign in and access our virtual exhibitor booths, prerecorded content and much more. You can explore the fair online anytime day or night through Oct. 30.

After that, we’ll publish a directory of exhibitors on our website with links for more information.

PLEASE NOTE: You will have to register in advance and sign in to access the fair. Registration is free!

Live And In Person

Different Choices 2021 also includes a unique program of live presentations and interactive workshops. Live sessions and workshops will be available every day of the Fair. 

Live presentations are free and will include panels of college admissions experts, mental health and learning disabilities professionals who work with students, workforce development leaders, authors, researchers, and parents and students who will share their stories. 

Bring your questions as there will be time for conversation and one-on-one!

Our small-groups workshops will also be lead by skilled experts. They’ll share great advice and help participants gain new skills. Spaces in workshops will be limited to allow for lots of interaction, and there will be a small fee.

Registered attendees will be able to book seats in our workshops on a first-come, first-serve basis. Be sure to sign up for our email to get notices when new workshops come on line. 

Detailed schedule coming soon!
