Our 10th and 11th grade students participated in the Bridges Career Exploration Day on Friday, March 6th. This event was held at Central Lakes College, Brainerd Campus. More than 2,400 students from 28 school districts were able to interact. More than 225 volunteers from local businesses and organizations and career and technical college programs partnered to showcase 150 regional high-demand careers.  Students talked with professionals from different companies to learn about local careers, their work environment, necessary skill sets, earning potential and the training needed to become employed. C-I students were engaged and had wonderful feedback about their experiences.
