The Career Days have all occurred for the 2018-2019 school year. We'll announce the 2019-2020 dates in the fall.
Career Days take place annually at Edgewood Jr. High and at Edgewood High School. During the 2018-2019 school year, the Franklin Initiative also hosted a Career Days event at Bloomington South High School.
The goal of these events is to expose students to career fields with which they may lack familiarity or of which they may be completely unaware. Students hear presentations from different local professionals who volunteered to represent a variety of career fields.
During this year's 2 Career Days at the Edgewood schools, over 350 students were able to hear presentations from professionals in the following fields:
• Public Safety • STEM
• Finance • Medicine
• Real Estate • Aviation
• Secondary Education • Counseling
