The African American Youth Career and College Fair will be held Friday, Feb. 17, 9 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Madison College Truax location. The keynote speaker will be Hip-Hop architect Michael Ford.

The purpose of our Youth Career and College Fairs is to show students that higher education is attainable. We do this by providing information that will help you identify jobs and programs in high demand over the next 10 years. You will have the opportunity to attend career workshops and create a curriculum for your designated career track.
