Help students discover the world of work!
The goal of the Career Exploration Day, hosted by the Kearney Area Chamber of Commerce Business & Education Committee and the Nebraska National Guard, is to introduce students to a variety of careers by allowing them to participate in hands on activities, such as exploring vehicles, using tools, operating computers and interviewing workers. With your help, students will be able to explore a wide range of careers such as construction, health and human services, legal, educational, retail, manufacturing, sales and more!
Be on the look out for different online experiences about various careers. Students will also have an opportunity to hear from representatives from universities, state colleges, community colleges, and have different resources that share about costs and types of programs available to train for the careers.
