SYAP is hosting four Career Exploration Days for Sheridan students in grades 7 through 12. Each Exploration Day focuses on a different job sector.

The first Career Exploration Day was about careers in construction, and nine local businesses and training programs came together to set up demonstrations and talk to students about all types of jobs in the construction industry. Students enjoyed engaging with representatives at each demonstration, and learning about trades and apprenticeships, programs at Ivy Tech Community College, Army Careers, and trying on some safety gear or using a power drill with ABC Prep Academy stayed to do
