Youth Career Fest Celebrates 10 Years

City of Austin Youth Initiatives Office’s Annual Youth Career Fest is a career exploration event for Austin area high school students hosted by the Austin Youth Council. The Austin Youth Council is a group of high school students who represent the voice of youth in local government by learning about city government and meeting with policymakers and administrators. 

The event will feature several state and local organizations including St. David’s Healthcare. Throughout the Austin area, 40+ schools plan to participate with over 2500 students registered to attend.

The Austin Youth Council created this event in 2013 to ensure their high school peers knew of career options as they navigate their educational pathway while still in high school. The fest gives students information as they near transitioning to the workforce and/or higher education in order to make sound career decisions.
