4-H Career Explorations


For over 90 years, the New York State 4-H Office has hosted the annual Career Explorations Conference on the Cornell Campus. Nearly 500 4-H youth and chaperones attend the action-packed, three-day event to immerse themselves in exploring their future education, career opportunities, and to experience Cornell University and campus life!  Cornell faculty and graduate students conduct engaged-learning workshops in two age-specific tracks: 
1)  Focus for Teens programs for youth entering grades 10-12
2)  University U programs for youth entering grades 8-9
Over 20 programs are offered to help youth understand what a particular career field entails, what type of education they would need to pursue, and to learn from the experiences of the Program Facilitators.
