This April, 4,000 local high school students will attend the city’s first Charlotte Career Discovery Day, a district-wide career exploration event hosted by the Mayor’s Youth Employment Program and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools.
Scheduled to be held at The Park Expo on April 9, the Career Discovery Day will provide youth with the opportunity to interact with Mayor Patrick Cannon and local government officials, business executives and leading professionals in the following industries:
- Health sciences
- Human services
- Local government
- Science, technology, engineering and math (STEM)
The students will also participate in a Dress for Success Fashion Show, courtesy of Belk, and visit with employers and colleges at a Career and College Fair. Additionally, there will be a mobile hospital unit, sustainable vehicle demonstration, and mock Bank of America branch and interactive game that will provide students with the opportunity to learn about the personal finance industry.
