Carreer Exploration & College fairs
During the summer, high school youth participate in several Career Day Events hosted by our corporate sponsors. Adult Achievers from these sponsors' sites host the youth for a day, engaging them in career and life skill development activities. Youth gain a deeper understanding on how the companies operate and meet with Adult Achievers and their colleagues to participate in a hands-on corporate experience.
Youth also participate in College Fairs and professional development workships throughout the summer to better enhance their knowledge on college and the application process. They complete a total of 15 hours of professional development training. This program is offered to YMCA Achievers and summer youth workers at the YMCA of Greater Boston branches.
