Explore Your Future
Deciding which career path to follow is a difficult decision for many youth. Explore Your Future is a unique opportunity for youth in grades 7-12 to explore their career options through information sessions and over 60 exhibitions from local employers and community organizations. Parents and guardians are encouraged to attend as well as educators who assist youth in career planning and exploration.
Over 900 parents and youth registered to participate last year. As a result of participating:
- 86% of participants feel more confident about their (or their child’s) future career choices
- 87% of participants have a stronger understanding of how available career options can fit with their strengths and interests
- 100% of exhibitors would recommend this opportunity to other companies
Here is a testimonial from a parent attendee at one of our Explore Your Future events:
"The first fellow that my son and I spoke with at WalterFedy was great. He was an electrical engineer. The openness for sharing why he chose the field, high school classes that he took, why he loves his job, and the opportunities sparked excitement. My son left that conversation and said 'this is what I want to do.'"
Explore Your Future 2020 is scheduled for April 8 at Bingemans.
Online registration will open in the 2019-20 school year.
