Earlier this month our Healthy Communities Director, Jonathan McNeice attended Career Explorations, a three-day event held on the Cornell University campus facilitated by Cornell’s 4-H Program. Local teens and members of our HYPE (Healthy Youth Positive Energy) youth group gained exposure to academic fields and career exploration, developed leadership skills, and learned about what it’s like to be on a college campus. Teens chose a specific program area (i.e. animal science, food science, physics, horticulture, human services and natural resources to name a few) and explored that area with college students and experts in the field.
