Career Explorations has two tracks.

University U for teens entering grades 8 and 9. Career Explorations is a three-day event for youth on the Cornell University campus. The purpose of this program is to provide youth with exposure to academic fields and career exploration, to develop leadership skills, to provide hands-on experience in a college setting and to introduce you to Cornell University.  The cost to attend last year was $250. We do not anticipate any dramatic price increase this year.  Please call your local county for more information.
