BAY’s goal is to connect high school students with industry representatives who will help them better understand and inspire them to pursue their desired career field.

What is our goal?

Who attends BAY?

The Business and Youth Expo, presented by Explore Solutions, is an opportunity for students to learn from and connect with professionals in a unique one-on-one setting. 

Representatives from participating companies and principal-selected San Diego County high school juniors and seniors. The event also features guest speakers.

Thank you to our 2017 sponsors for their support!

This was an incredible event. The students were very enthusiastic, professional, and polite. Mr. Cecchetto was such an engaging speaker and Dr. Wahl from the Salk Institute was inspiring."

Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to attend the expo and luncheon today.  It was such an amazing and educational event.  I felt so lucky to be at the table of engineers from LifeProof as I share so many common interests with them!  I am amazed at the generosity so many participants displayed to us students and their offers for future contacts, including a tour of LifeProof!!  We are so fortunate to be provided such a meaningful opportunity."
