Youngsters  will soon have the opportunity to tour a mobile workshop designed to encourage young people to seek careers in technical fields. 

The 18-wheeler is part of the “Be Pro, Be Proud” initiative launched last week by Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson, the Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce, and other state economic agencies and businesses. 

The trailer features interactive displays and information on various careers including becoming an electrician or an H-VAC technician. 

The mobile workshop will be on the ASU-Newport campus in Jonesboro on Kruger Drive beginning at 10 today.
