2014 Career Explorations!
The 2014 New York 4-H Career Explorations Conference was held at Cornell University in early July, providing youth from across the state with the opportunity to learn about careers in STEM-related fields, how to become more engaged in their communities, and careers that study and promote healthy living. 
With classes such as Entomology and Fiber Science and Apparel Design, 4-Hers were able to learn about possible career options they may never have learned about in high school. In classes such as Youth Voice Through Photos (conducted by the College of Human Ecology’s Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research), youth were taught how to identify a problem in a community, brainstorm solutions, and present their ideas to a group of people. Finally, students in the workshops on Food Science and The Human Body learned about the mechanisms of health and how to provide their bodies with proper nutrition.
Career Explorations 2015 will be held June 30 to July 2. Make sure to check the NYS 4-H Career Explorations website for further information as the year progresses.
