Ethnic Minority Youth Career and College Fairs

The Office of Student Life is pleased to offer the ethnic minority high school Youth Career and College Fairs (YCCF) which include Latino, Asian and African-American fairs in service of these ethnic minority groups.  In partnership with Edgewood College, the Office of Student Life coordinates, plans and supports these events, which are open to all high schools within the college’s district.

Purpose

The purpose of the YCCF is to demonstrate that higher education is attainable by providing pertinent information that will identify jobs and programs in high demand over the next 10 years by attending career workshops as well as designing and/or implementing a curriculum for their designated career track.
