Students from WHS and UHS joined 2,000 students from around Central Texas at the annual Youth Employment Solutions or YES Expo on May 20 at Extraco Events Center in Waco.
The event gives area employers an opportunity to provide information to students about jobs available in their fields.
Students from UHS/AJM Academies set up displays and talked to area students about their academies and career choices from a student perspective.
WHS students served as YES Expo Business Ambassadors and helped with event coordination.
This event is a hands-on way for students to explore one on one with the different jobs out there that would otherwise be invisible to them. Displays and discussions give students a chance to figure out what jobs they're interested in and what more they can study to reach that goal. Businesses also have the chance to network with students as they will soon be part of the workforce.
