The YouthForce NOLA Career Expo creates an interactive, engaging event focused on target industry clusters for partner schools’ sophomores to inform selection of career pathways.
Students have hands-on experiences in each industry and have the opportunity to speak with industry professionals from a variety of companies across the New Orleans area.
Representatives from area universities and third party training providers are also present and talk about the various programs of study in each of the targeted sectors.
The Expo takes place in March every year and is managed by Junior Achievement of New Orleans.
