Youth Career and College Fairs

Madison College's Intercultural Exchange, in partnership with Edgewood College, is pleased to offer Ethnic Youth Career and College Fairs. These fairs focus on three different communities: African American, Latino and Asian. The fairs are open to students from all high schools within the MATC district. We do not provide transportation.

Purpose

The purpose of our Youth Career and College Fairs is to show students that higher education is attainable. We do this by providing information that will help you identify jobs and programs in high demand over the next 10 years. You will have the opportunity to attend career workshops and create a curriculum for your designated career track.
