As today’s visionaries, you are invited to meet the next generation of our community's leaders. The BAY (Business and Youth) Expo is a career exploration event that provides professionals with the opportunity to share their professional wisdom and career journeys with high school juniors and seniors who have been hand selected by their principals to attend this unique event. At the Expo, your table top exhibit will showcase the work being done at your company and the interactive lunch will provide a forum for our students interested in pursuing a career in your industry to meet and learn from your employees.
