Career Development Conference

The Career Development Conference brings together students from Ashland, Medina, Stark, Summit, and Trumbull Counties to showcase their knowledge and skills in one of twelve competitions centered on the soft skills they develop through their time in JOG, such as career preparation, creative decision-making, and employability skills.

While not competing, the youth explore the Career & Community Expo, where they can practice their soft skills, explore potential career paths, and even seek employment. Hundreds of kids participate each year, and dozens of community volunteers and professionals mentor, judge and inspire participants in expo and competitions.
