The Career Exploration Series is a group of exciting hands-on virtual workshops for deaf and hard-of-hearing students in grades 9-12. Each month we focus on two unique topics that relate to career options for your future and a fun activity. You also will learn which college majors can lead to the career you are interested in.
When you register, we will send a box full of free supplies and materials for you to use during the workshop and beyond to explore each topic.
We have a new series for Fall 2021.
