---> STUDENTS REGISTER HERE <---
The APEX Youth Education Summit (YES) is a career day for at-risk youth (ages 14-21) to engage and explore their ideal career path. Through workshops, speaker panels and group discussions, students will have the unique opportunity to talk with and learn from working professionals across different industry fields.
