YNS Career Exploration Academy

Your Next Star Career Exploration Academy

A centerpiece of the new YNS Employment Center is our Your Next Star Academies, hands-on training programs that help participants become workforce-ready, explore new careers, and gain real-world experience through post-academy internships.

In 2023, we launched the Your Next Star Career Exploration Academy, a three-day training specifically geared towards students ages 17-21. This academy is specifically designed to complement transition programs, with participants receiving hands-on practice in two areas: soft skills (e.g. communication, creative thinking, work ethic, teamwork, positivity, time management, problem-solving, etc.) and employment skills.

In April 2024 (during school vacation week), we are excited to bring back our Career Exploration Academy. You can apply here.
