For the past 13 years, the Bridges Career Academies & Workplace Connection has hosted the Career Exploration Day, an annual special event offering more than 2,500 high school students from 28 local school districts a unique way to meet business professionals and explore careers. Due to Covid-19 crowd restrictions, Bridges is prevented from hosting this event in 2021. Despite this, Bridges is offering students an opportunity to explore the hundreds of careers available to them and to better understand local career options.
