On April 9, the Mayor’s Youth Employment Program (MYEP) and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools will co-host the city’s first Career Discovery Day, a district-wide career exploration event for thousands of local high school students. This event is the first of its kind in the Charlotte area.
During the event, students will be able to interact with local government officials, business executives and leading professionals in the following industries: finance; health sciences; local government; and science, technology, engineering and math.
In addition to having a College and Career zone, the event will also feature:
