The 3rd Annual Youth Career Fest is a career exploration event for Austin-area high school students hosted by the Austin Youth Council.

In 2014, the Austin Youth Council decided they wanted to focus their efforts on youth unemployment and career exploration so the Youth Career Fest was created. Last year, we had over 2,000 people present and over 100 companies/organizations showcasing various career opportunities.

The 3rd Annual Youth Career Fest will be held at the Palmer Events Center, 900 Barton Springs Road, Austin, Texas, 78704 on Tuesday April 12th, 2016 from 9:00am-1:00pm.

We are expecting 100+ booths that represent different businesses, companies, and organizations in Austin as well as over 1,500 high school students. This year we will also be having guest speakers and a STEAM focused panel, which will have representatives from the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art/Design, and Math discussing their careers.  The mission of this event is to allow Austin-area high school students an opportunity to interact with people who are already working in the careers they may be interested in pursuing as well as ensure Austin-area high school students are provided with job opportunities and career choices.
